A new world record!!

Found on a local beach: the oldest recorded crisp packet ever washed up on a beach anywhere*...

Sadly this pre-decimal packet of Golden Wonder crisps was not found by me but, rather appropriately, by flyintheface artist-in-residence, Jane Darke, whilst staying here earlier this month. Jane is well known for her 'wrecking' on the Atlantic coast Cornwall coast which she documented with her late husband Nick Darke in her brilliant and haunting film, The Wrecking Season.
 To see more of Jane's work, visit her website.

* unless you know different....?
