My hobby is a double pleasure.
On one side,
I can plan my research and breathe the dust of old documents, which is really enjoyable...
& on the other side,
I never know what can appear around the corner, and i can let myself be surprised.
This pleasure can grow exponentially.
For example, when the owner of a leaflet sends me a scan of a business stamp
i had never seen before.
Not only she is the owner, but she is the "first owner".
And this "first owner" who is kind enough to send me a scan so i can share it with you,
The coffee maker was bought in 1984
in ByDesign in Beverly Center in Los Angeles, U.S.A.
... the never ending story.
