The theme on this week's Thursday photo Challenge website is "Beauty" and I was tempted to send this in - either ironically or as 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder'. Mostly ironically I think. Anyway, it's a very straightforward photo of a sculpture by Picasso, snapped at the Picasso Museum in Antibes. I do not know the title of the sculpture. I shall call it Fred, and see if it blinks.

Atkinson Grimshaw: An Autumn Idyll, 1885

Some downright nostalgia here - Britains catalogues from the late 60s, or in other words my childhood. Britains made model soldiers from about 1893, and diversified later on, especially into farm animals & machinery, and zoo animals. If interested, a bit more detail on James Opie. I think they were recently taken over by another company, but I can't find the info on the Web. Britains as we knew them no longer appears to exist.
