I got an online appeal from The Landmark Trust in England to help them (with money, ça va sans dire) in re-restoring the ornamental facade of the Egyptian House in Penzance, originally created as a museum and geological repository in 1835. Several decades ago the Trust preserved the building the first time around, creating three flats which can be booked by curious travelers.
My handwriting on the back of the bottom photo (all these were taken with the disposable cardboard 35mm film cameras that were standard technology 15 years ago) tells me that I am repairing my daughter's purple hooded sweatshirt. She despises purple clothing now, but she liked it then.
My daughter's response to this nostalgic series of photos appears here.
