Hey kids, now you know what to do with your vinyl when you get fed up with it:  Send it off to the front! Slacker Record Week (I kid you not) took place from October 28 to November 2nd 1918 in the US. Citizens collected unwanted discs and sent them to the forces. This poster was designed by Charles Buckles Falls, who was on the job for book donations too.

There are a couple of fine images in the ‘Made In Britain’ sale coming up at Sotheby’s on 13th September. Above, Building Aircraft : Making Engines  by CRW Nevinson and from a 1917 series of wartime works produced by the UK government, and below, from 1920, Paul Nash’s Promenade No.1.

Leftover Londoner is on holiday in Norway, not that you’d know it from this picture, which shows the Port Of London, as painted in 1911-12 by Anders Svarstad. It is, however, hanging in the KODE art gallery in Bergen along with lots of Svarstad’s other (not quite as good) works.
