Back in my hometown zip this weekend, details from Dads. His Father George posing between cray pots with two of the days finest, late 50's (awesome home knit shawl collar). Smiths Astral-wheelhouse clock, UK made. The Cutty Sark, hand made, sewn and micro rigged in Mauritius. Henry Browne and Son-wheelhouse Barometer, UK made, both the dials came of George's first boast The Mercury, and were later given to my father. Related post.

*Dad claims that George's fingerprints always reappear on the brass between cleaning, 40 years after his death!
