You made me laugh with this and I have many memories of preinternet research and papers created on a typewriter. Love your imagination.

Reminds me of my archival research days made me laugh a lot, i had to deal with eagles, bears, three lions and lots of other wonderful people that made it amazing.

This shot was designed and taken by my wife, Maureen/Mo, I just titled and presented it. Glad you have enjoyed it. Thanks for Vs & Cs, and for any others which may be shared. Smile

Could these be Britannica? We were a lower inclome household when I was a youth with the ' Books of Knowledge ' . I devoured them mostly in art , 'anatomy, and ' Things to Make and do. ' Crystal radio and potatoe battery sorts of things. Also optics and telescope projects. Better than school any day. TG

Certainly, this method takes a little longer but is ultimately much more rewarding in opening up a world of tangents and fizzing synapses! Smile Please bear with me ...... Wink Wink
A great image - light hearted and thought provoking! A gong for Maureen is very much in order! SmileSmileSmile

It turns out I did not upload Maureen's latest edit of her shot, and she had also titled it, and added a complementary quote. To remedy this I have added her latest edit, and additional detail as a Version; she was in bed when I selected it - should have checked first. Blush

@tonyguitar - Yes Tony, you are correct. I had a set of Arthur Mee's Childrens Encyclopaedias when I was a kid, and I was just like you with them. I remember rushing home from school at lunch-times and home-times to lift on off the shelf, and be eagerly scanning through them. I have always loved having reference books to get answers to my many questions. I do confess to using the web more than the books now, though, but I still can't part with them. I think my Dad bought me the Childrens Encyclopaedias to get peace from me and my many questions, Smile
