The curious. Its own beginning and endless end, once more.
Take the old straight track from Chetham’s. Groping in the maiden gaslight for their Madam Geneva monstrance, apparitions of Karl and Friedrich. New Romans to the fray.

• TV GUIDE
Banqueting at The Red Dragon, soused. Fred stumbling home to abuse his servants, once more.
“I’ll tell you what, their shit stinks just like everyone else’s.”
Manchester’s traffic sent down onto Chapel Street.
A lilac skirt after a print.
Curios. Mick Weaver jams Taj Mahal.
Boy with Dog. Unk.
The great tea race.
A tenner on the red.
The Communist Manifesto.
Cardinal sins, once more.
“And that Jimmy Savile used to live in Prestwich… yeah, opposite the hospital.
And before that, near The Rialto.”
