Decided to take some friends to the Haworth 1940`s weekend. Not quite as good as previous years that I`ve been I felt but still fun. Funniest guy was this one doing the Churchill speech with a clearly Yorkshire accent. Talked about "if it `appens" etc. I half expected him to say "We shall  on `t beaches"   ;D

Didn't realise he 'was' Churchill, thought he was a singer, though I'm not sure they used to sing with their hat on. Great vintage style portrait.

Yes not as convincing a Churchill as their old one who seemed to have gone this year along with a few other regulars.

The rat pack used to sing wearing hats in their movies and Sammy Davies junior nearly always wore a hat on stage.  :tup:

I found an old typewriter at my parents house. My mum used to use it years ago when she worked for Lloyds Bank, and she kept it when computers came along.

My children (aged 9, 8, and 5) are fascinated, having never seen one before. They can't seem to stop writing letters, and my eldest asked if it had had autocorrect! :2funny:

Lovely old Imperial. I just love typewriters. Every car boot I go to I look for one. All I've ever seen are small portables, but I want an office machine - a Remington, Adler, Olympus or Olivetti if I can. I'll keep looking. Maybe one day. I've got a late Brother electric typewriter, but you can't beat the mechanical ones.

There is something rather special about it. Tempted to keep it but unsure. I look upon it as a piece of history and it has bags of character.

An oldie from me this week - been a bit busy. Seem to have fixed my PC by replacing the power supply (so saved having to lay out for a new one), been sourcing a new door mirror for the Mondeo after someone inconsiderate, not to mention useless, driver coming in the opposite direction vapourised it when Mrs H was on her way to work - didn't stop, dashcams now ordered; and finally we've been opening the pool up for the season. Not as hard as putting to bed, but still quite a lot of work.

So here's a Polaroid camera:
