Friday moments and Winton Woods
I came across this image this morning. It entranced me. Not sure why - traces of the wee Scottish boy building wigwams in the garden from instructions in a comic - childhood memories of the old woman who lived in a caravan in Winton Woods - and of course, a residue of  my sadness over the earlier post on Holland House. Whatever, the impulse, I have this idea to share it as a Friday moment.

Source - National Media Museum
It comes form the Daily Herald archive/collection, which in turn sits inside the UK National Media Museum. No idea of the connection between this archive and the museum - perhaps others can explain it?
