TIM HAYWARD & ANNEBELLA POLLEN – The Number of the Duck
Joining Tom Jackson to discuss the postcards from their pasts are food writer and broadcaster TIM HAYWARD (Loaf Story, Knife, The DIY Cook) and from University of Brighton, academic ANNEBELLA POLLEN (Mass Photography: Collective Histories of Everyday Life, Nudism in a Cold Climate). We explore the aesthetics of John Hinde postcards, semi-ritual pig killing and a remarkable coincidence at Monte Cassino; we stroll a Victorian Brighton walkway under threat, join the witches and weirdoes and hippies and others, as we chase life stories in photo albums. Plus a glimpse of collectors’ dreams and collectors’ nightmares, secret messages and the dirtiest postcard of all. Cut on dotted line for a cocktail coaster. Wish you were here?
