I know Lesley will hardly believe it, but though I've already had this wonderful card all wrapped up in its box for a fortnight, I was a very good girl and didn't open it! Lesley gave it to me when we met at Stroud and I was on my honour not to peek, sniff, prod or otherwise interfere with it.
But wasn't it worth being patient? Lesley's made a magnificient concertina card with lots of layers of vintage views of the Manhattan skyline - all through the lens of a camera.
I absolutely love the faded shades and the era they represent.
Thank you so much Lesley - it's truly brilliant.
There were some other very lovely accompaniments, which I'll be putting on my own blog later - please come and see what this clever and generous girl has done.
