Documentation of the day-to-day as it happens - collecting together the stored, saved and neglected – viewing the past with hindsight. At Suffolk Record Office within HC23/E1/1 – a package of Letters and papers, chiefly notes, instructions or correspondence regarding the use of James Smyth and Sons Ltd machines - I was drawn to a tracing of a drill part on an aged semi-transparent paper – it sat within a bundle of papers, receipts, carbon copies of similar quality - its fragility somehow mirroring the very idea of time and loss – the actual works and a way of life have all gone – this was particularly poignant as it was in my village and the site now a range of ‘luxury houses’ built on it!
