Imaging for the August Auction

A brief account of today at work, with pictures.

INTRODUCTION

I have lots of new pictures, relating to the James and Sons’ August sale (Wednesday 31st). Today’s imaging has involved two types of item…

MILITARIA

You will notice that one item that has been included with militaria is actually not so, but most of these items do count as militaria…

EPHEMERA/ BOOKS

This section starts with lot 361, which can be thought of as an anatomisation of a rolls-royce…

I am branch secretary of NAS West Norfolk and #actuallyautistic (diagnosed 10 years ago at the comparatively advanced age of 31). I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.
