I am very busy today. I have a reader pass to the British LIbrary, and I’m sitting here in front of a database/microfilm reader looking at newspapers from London in the 1960s.
There was no W post yesterday because I had to leave very early to get to the Royal Albert Hall for the performance of Titanic Live. I have pictures to share from that, in a later post. Oh boy, was that fantastic.
I didn’t get home until after midnight–the tube I needed stopped running at midnight, so I had to bail on everybody, because it takes me about an hour to get from where I’m staying to wherever I want to be.
Reading these articles and scrolling through papers takes a lot of time.
I recommend that if you do this in your own research, you target it a little better. I could spend days and days in here, reading all kinds of papers, getting a sense of what people were talking about at the time. Of course, England (still) is a class-conscious society, so the topics would differ from the conversation of, say, BritCharacter and his contemporaries and BritCharacter’s household help and her cronies.
Back to work!
