You're quite right of course!

I just thought with this particular item though, given it's provenance, it might be a 'keeper'.  (See my shed for all the revolting 'keepers' I've been wrong about though  :wink:  :lol: )

Horses for Courses, Max: the trend could be on an upper or a downer. Personally I'd keep it though :wink:

David — Nice to see the origins of all this still here at the start of this topic.   Does Carl Chinn know what he inadvertantly started?   I must update Liz.

I have since contacted him and he's been very supportive - even offered use of his own article on Crystal Palace that had some detail to support my own meanderings.

He's also invited me onto his radio show when the book's launched! :shock:  :oops:

Look what you started! :wink:

A fascinating reread on the basis of current knowledge - how things change. We can all blame Bernard for the Chance glass GMB epidemic  :lol:  :lol:

So not my fault after all! :lol:

Actually, after initial reservations I am rather enjoying this research and find it quite stimulating. The amount of data I now have is also quite alarming - several Gigabytes... :shock:

David — I hope you haven't forgotten Carl Chinn's offer of free local publicity.   Local sales could well be your best market for the book, so a well-publicised launch at the Smethwick Heritage Centre is important.   And I am sure that the Express & Star would be prepared to publicise what their piece initiated.   All three events should be carefully planned.

It looks as if I am committed to two copies, one (with an appropriate inscription) for my niece Liz, who seems to have unwittingly started all this, and an initial copy for me.   Now I know you really want us to pay by some hi-tech process, but I would prefer to pay by a simple cheque.   Is this possible?   Please email me with details.   ... and would I have to pay extra for a possibly unique unsigned copy?

ps — David, just look at the total number of views of this topic.   Amazing!

Thanks Bernard, I'll e-mail privately but going to the Cortex Design site gives full details on payment methods - and cheque is fine as I will not be holding these for clearance with Christmas approaching fast.

I have also posted in the Marketplace with details

Just let me know if you want books signed or not :)
