Bus Conductor

This figure shows an old-fashioned bus conductor – I loved the detail, like her reading the People’s Friend. If I remember the blurb correctly, there is some speculation that this model is based on the actress and singer Barbara Dickson who played the part in a play or something (I really hope I didn’t just make that up!).

Ongoing apologies for the lack of blog visiting. I have a thesis chapter to be in on Monday and I don’t want to think about how much of it still needs writing. Argh. Thanks for stopping by though, and I’ll return your visit hopefully early next week.

Playing Around

This photo is of a piece of art that was in the Royal Concert Hall (I’m not sure if it’s still there – I took this about a month ago when I was at one of the Celtic Connections concerts). It is by an artist called Jan Miller who is based in Penicuik (south of Edinburgh). The figures are (I think) papier mache, and about 2/3 real life size, and depict real-life musicians (I wish I could remember who!). I really liked them. (I’ll show another one tomorrow).
