2020 looms on tbe horizon. Around 3:45, I awoke. Simply being in the same position too long prompted my waking. After an attempt to go back to sleep, I dressed and came downstairs

Right now I am watching a film what a holiday in Blackpool was like in 1957. It seems the style role model for women was Marilyn Monroe, the men Elvis. The swimsuits and other fashions change but holiday at the seaside seems unchanging. The Blackpool trams are a constant also. The neon lights are a delight.

Now here is a film on Victoria Pier, Blackpool 1904. This was filmed on Whitsuntide. These old films give no idea of how hard life was in the first decade of the Twentieth Century.

I shall go back to bed when J goes to work in about an hour.
