I wonder if this should be in the Paperweights section for the information of a wider audience?
The forum description for Market Place includes: "To be fair to all members, posts offering items for sale in other forums will be moved here even if the post includes an ID request."

When ID is uncertain, it is best to ask for the help within the relevant forum before putting the item up for sale.

I'm curious about your pics, Alastair.
What is it you do with them that allows the first blow up from the thumbnail, to blow up more?
I get a + sign that appears and hovers over it. It's a wonderful feature.  :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

I'm curious too Sue as I've no idea how that happens :D I use a Mac and most times I just use something called Preview to re-size them. Magic must happen that I have no control over :D
As to KevH's point - I wasn't meaning the main paperweights bit for my benefit. Anyone else seeing a similar weight is maybe more likely to be pre-warned if info was in that section. Maybe it's only me but prior to posting this - I don't know the last time I looked at Market Place whereas I fairly regularly look at the Paperweights section. Was just a thought

Why don't you just condense all the info in a new thread in paperweights without the for sale bit...

That would save a moderator from having to edit and work behind the scenes to get around the market place rule to transfer the information, which I agree is very useful Alastair.  :)

Mac... a plastic raincoat?

Christine and Sue - my understanding was anything up for sale whether that's made clear or not, should be in this bit. Yes - when the auction is over whether or not it sells, I could do that. Market place posts get deleted after some time I think? Would be a shame to not have the info in this thread available for future reference.
Sue - favourite bit of childhood holidays was the excitement of getting a new Pacamac when it invariably rained on day 1. The rest of the holiday could be spent trying to re-pack it into its wee pouch :D

You can have two posts on the same thing as long as the one NOT in the marketplace doesn't mention that it's for sale

I remember them.  ;D
Along with the paper underpants that were the fashionable gimmick at the time. No laundry, just throw them away. Mother thought they'd be useful for camping.
They were not remotely practical for a child bouncing on a trampoline.  ::)

That was not the pair that came wrapped around my copy of Alice Cooper's "School's Out", although I was made to use those ones too.
We had no idea they'd be worth anything later.  :'(
