I know a guy who likes to spend a bit of time on ebay. He likes looking around, checking out whats going on. And recently he saw, and bought, this photo album. More of a scrapbook really. It belonged to a woman – Joan Mercer – who in 1950 travelled by cruise ship from Australia to England with her husband. And she kept all her tickets and menus, business cards and postcards and she made a scrapbook.
And I guess maybe she's now died and someone from the family has put it up for sale on Ebay. Which is a bit sad really. Unless she just had a massive clean up and decided to get rid of the clutter. But the trip seemed pretty special to her so I doubt that happened.
So now I have this scrapbook sitting on my bookcase and I know about one small part of Joans life.
She looks a bit like Bette Midler
They flew to Hawaii as well. Also went to Cuba
In something like this I gather
