    When you look at this great take, it makes you realise how far we’ve come since those days with regards to coinage and technology. Shhame society itselfs seems to have taken a leap backwards instead mind, what with unemployment, broken homes/marriages, lack of extended family and support and state of economy in general…see what muse you prompted with your art? lol. Thanks for sharing a snapshot of history! Kindest thoughts, Anna-Marie.

  • I’m not sure how to respond to this comment, I hope it didn’t make you sad. It’s always interesting to read other people’s views, and so thankyou for taking the time to leave your comment.
