Past – or to be more exact the past which, as every high school student knows, is not the same as history.

Impressions – eyewitness accounts, biography, book and newspaper extracts, old photographs, new photographs of old things. The interesting details that text books leave out. Short posts mostly, so that I don’t take up too much of your time but, on the other hand, this might be just the place to visit when you’re trying to put off till tomorrow what you really should be doing today.

You are welcome – encouraged even – to link back to this blog or re-blog posts with appropriate acknowledgement. Or both. However, please do not copy the content and present it as the result of your own research. Yes, I know you wouldn’t do that but some lazy, unscrupulous people would.
