Re: Mutoscope lens

Re: Victorian wall hanging circus astrology game machine

I did know about this machine being back up for auction. I was also kindly made aware of it by fellow member. When I bid previously I had not seen the machine as was in Derby.

Re: Pat Gresham

Wonderful pictures, these show the real Pat I will remember, full of the joy of life despite life not always being so joyful for her. She always looked on the positive side of everything.
