… the more they stay the same.

This past weekend there was a massive tidy of the dark and hidden places of Old St Paul’s. All the rubbish that had been collected and saved throughout the years was piled in the hall, and today as it was getting carted away to be reused and recycled, I rescued some random pages from June 1946 issues of The Scotsman. It’s striking how little has changed over the past 70 years.
