As a teenager I knew everything....I'm still trying to figure out when I forgot it all.

Last Saturday one of our local flickr groups organised a trip to Walsall
Museum stores, a behind the scenes glimpse in the archives at a "secret"

I didn't take as many pictures as I should because I spent some of the time
chatting with Goonflower (it's where she works don't you know) and Walsall
Councils Press Officer Dan Slee, and I spent far too long reading the closed
boxes to see what was in them fascinated by some of the things contained
within for posterity but this shot I think is my favourite

My full set can be seen on Flickr

With thanks to Catherine and Jennifer for giving up their Saturday morning
to allow us access and, to Dan for suggesting it in the first instance.

Lovely. I wrote so much on one of these 20 years ago. I wonder where all that work is now?

A typewriter! Wonderfully complex machines using leverage, not digital electronics. A wonderful slice of life from the way-back machine.

Fantastic shot. I did a lot of typing on an old machine when I was a kid. :)
