Found in Shrewsbury


A postcard with a lump: squeeze kitteh's egg (bread?) basket and she (sometimes) gives a tiny high-pitched squeaky-type sound. Well, she did to begin with - that functionality appears to have died. German. Looks 1950s. The crease in the shoulder fur? That's the squeezed middle. Not sure about the wild, druggy eyes - she looks friendly enough but one suspects she could turn on a sixpence. Perhaps trying to persuade you to go out for a picnic, the umbrella an insurance policy, the apron an oversight, I think you might wish you'd never agreed to go along once the afternoon was over.

Something of an online zibaldone, albeit not on Tumblr where one might otherwise expect to find such things, "Mrs Lemon's Visit to Japan" takes its name from a poster seen in Cornwall advertising a talk at the local Women's Institute. I hope there is something here you like.

NB If you go back in time far enough on here some of the photos start to disappear - not sure why. Whatever is happening with the missing pictures, apologies.
