The Days When We Were So Happy and Did Not Know It

The second of a four part serial that I have written entitled 'The Days When We Were So Happy and Did Not Know It' in collaboration with my good friend the photographer Nick Fallowfield-Cooper is published in the latest issue of Fallon's Angler.  It is a story based on and inspired by the extraordinary illustrated scrapbook of the Victorian/Edwardian lady Marjorie Taylor (nee Tillard) and commences in the year 1895.
