You are following photographer Ginnie, I like very much this scene and your treatment , surely taken in the Black Country Museum? I recall this play.
Bill Phillips: It is a bit in Ginnie's style. Still that is no bad thingsmile Yes it is the Black country museum Philine. It was also interesting watching them trying to skip on a long rope like girls used to do even when I was a child. They were hopeless!

Now that's what we need. We don't need yet more clueless idiots with degrees in Media Studies. We need people who have been trained properly by a professional.
Bill Phillips: Too right. We need people who can make a disc spin on a bit of string. It was what made us great, built an empire.............
That's lovely Bill. The expression on the little chaps face is priceless.
Bill Phillips: He is really working t it Pauline
