Now, hang on a minute, before we go further we need to look backwards and forwards. As it’s a new year and a new January (2024, to be precise), it’s good to know
what we have learned with PINS, and what we should look forward to.
A photograph of a letter received by the photocopier in the early 1990s, with a photocopied text, sellotaped onto the letter, listing some unnamed valuation. We only know this unhappy scenario came 13th. Lancashire Chief White Witch, Dame Thora Hird, is named, to give the scenario described yet more potency.
A photograph of the front of a photocopy of a letter received by the photocopier in a Leiden pub in the early 2000s. The sender was another Lancastrian. No warning was given. The weird imagery, and the slightly offbeat threat on the reverse (see below) is tied into a request for the return of a number of copies of Manchester punk fanzine, City Fun, which the photocopier had borrowed.
The back of the above, with mention of other, now sadly defunct, Leiden pubs.
