Just a quick post today after a hefty break (all will become clear!) – I went home to Sussex for the weekend and as I was ambling around the Southdowns with my friend I thought of Eric Ravilious
and how much I love his work. Today, The Persephone Post
has featured one of his images – it’s funny how you think of something after a long time and then it crops up elsewhere as a secondary reminder!!
I loved the old slam door trains – there was nothing quite like the feeling of speeding through the countryside with the window pushed down to the bottom whilst the warm summer air blew in your face. Somehow, I don’t think Brief Encounter could have happened on our electric, aeroplane style trains!
