The Archive stuff in Part One today is from a scanned transparencies folder and, for once, it's all easily dateable to the period from mid-1989 to mid-1990 when I lived in Belsize Road, in a top-floor flat above Bisque, a bespoke radiator shop owned by Chip's dapper plumber friend, Geoff, and his jug-eared Irish partner, Johnny Gordon.

First, more of my new lamp. I think you can count me pleased with it...
