Astley? Never heard of him? Neither had I, but this is fascinating…

This is obviously my days for reading fascinating posts – thanks to Mike Rendell for this post on Philip Astley – and like many readers I’m sure, I wish I had such a treasure trove of family memorabilia to delve into.

A handbill from 1771 would be fantastic on it’s own, but chests of the stuff… have to admit to being a little green!
