Old Papers [Feb. 9th, 2014|03:14 pm]
Tony Grist
Here's a letterhead for my great grandfather's millinery business- which doesn't exist anymore.  And here's a letter from my father to my grandfather thanking him for his advice in the setting up of his engineering business- which doesn't exist anymore.

And here- collected together in a brown envelope- are my sister's school reports. Oh dear, Jenny, I get the impression you weren't trying very hard...

Old papers- so important, so absorbing, so worrying in their time- and they no longer matter in the least. The creditors have shut up shop, the money has been spent, the issues have gone cold and the world has moved on.

They matter in a different way- as documents of social and historical interest.
