Location Prudhoe, Northumberland, United Kingdom
Introduction Our website tells you a lot more. Our internet presence is summarised here . I am an author, curator, dealer interested in the ephemera of travel and transport amongst many other enthusiasms. I am married to a wonderful wife and mother and our daughter Clare is already a National Trust life member. We hold or link to some exceptional resources as the main website shows. We do a lot of work with on-line auctions. Our interests are very eclectic as the range of blogs that we follow shows. Because we follow a blog do not immediately assume it is a 100% endorsement!
