Dickens at his finest.
A Tale of Two Cities
Arguably the second best-selling, single novel of all-time.
Google that on the triple w!
It's just behind Don Quixote.

"I wish you to know that you have been the last dream of my soul."
Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

Just old books.........📚📚📚

A monastery needs two lungs and a heart they say. The heart is the Chapel; the lungs: a garden and a library... Having a breathing moment amongst 400 years of books in our sunlit library in Church St. friary today. Here the wisdom of the ages speaks a word of stillness to the frantic minds of today. "Peace, be still", they seem to say, "all things pass, only Divine Love remains."

Sometime mid 2015, I had the pleasure of meeting the man in the photo, Mr Ahmad Bafanna; the owner of Haziq N Mohi Rare Books and Antiquarian Bookstore located in the vicinity of Charminar, Hyderabad.
.
Today, while researching for an upcoming trip, with plans of visiting him again; I stumbled upon the news that Mr Bafanna had passed away in October, 2015.
.
While saddened by the news, I am happy to know that his brothers have taken up the responsibility of running the place now, and since early February 2016, they have set work to digitize and categorize the inventory.
.
This is just a small tribute to the man who had spent almost 50 years of his life indirectly proliferating knowledge to the world.

Also details other events including a bicycle race, egg race, three legged race, a band concert, a supper, and others. Harrisville is a small hamlet in northern New York state. We could find a reference to Jimmie's Roving Ramblers in a 1944 newspaper advertisement, but our guess is that this is a few years earlier. We assume they played some version of country dance music.
