Sorry for blurry picture.
When I cleaned out the shed I found some of the early strange metal objects I had collected...I hadn't realised how long this strange hobby had been going on!
This packet of curtain rod gliders is very delicate now.

I seem to remember some strange metal objects dropping through my letter box once from a certain young student in Alsager! They were delightful "racks" for postal ephemera, stamps etc. so obviously this passion for small metal things goes back a long way - even to childhood I suspect. After all the West Midlands hwere you were born and lived then was a hive of small manufacturing industries making belt buckles (didnt you work in a belt buckle factory one summer?) locks, keys, nails, etc.

Indeed I did..the Midlands was known for its back yard small manufacture of padlocks,buckles and the like...must be where the seed was sewn.
That buckle factory soooo noisy though.
