Postcard from Berlin. It is a half of a Trabant. ‘The terrible car’ was made between 1964 and 1990 in East Germany. A tragi-comic photo with an atmosphere of decay and dereliction around the half-car.

Che Guevara, 1963. “I have a wish. It as a fear as well – that in my end will be my beginning,” he had said.

And because we all love Audrey  – I have not met a single person in my life who has not gushed at the mention of the beauty – here are a trio of postcards I bought during my travels. I love collecting tinseltown memorabilia too.

Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire

Nuggets from Funny Face:

[Dick kisses Jo]

Jo Stockton: Why did you do that?

Dick Avery: Empathy. I put myself in your place and I felt that you wanted to be kissed.

Jo Stockton: I’m afraid you put yourself in the WRONG place. I have no desire to be kissed, by you or anyone else.

Roman Holiday

Princess Ann: Have I been here all night, alone?

Joe Bradley: If you don’t count me, yes.

Princess Ann: So I’ve spent the night here – with you?

Joe Bradley: Well now, I-I don’t know that I’d use those words exactly, but uh, from a certain angle, yes.

Princess Ann: [beaming with a smile] How do you do?

Joe Bradley: How do you do?

With those wonderful Audrey snippets, I shall sign and sigh off.
