Restoration Project One
This winter’s restoration projects are under way, at last. First up is a an old wind-up gramophone circa 1934. It was made by the Gramophone Company of Hayes, notable for the fact that dad worked there as a cabinet maker. This one probably pre-dates his time there by a few years.
Here are a few shots of the beast before undertaking any restoration. Some utter tool has painted it with a variety of white gloss and emulsion paints right over the beautiful polished mahogany case.
It’s been a while…
At last, a decent sunset again. Excuse the blobs. There is mould growing on the CCD.
More Silkwood sun
To be honest, I’m going to be very happy when the current heatwave is over.
It’s been a while.
