I don’t enjoy the grey we get in the winter days of January and February. Once again made more difficult by Covid and its Omicron variant. Though I have so far avoided the variant, the consequence has been further restriction to my contact with other people. Travelling to London and meeting with customers who so regularly make a point of visiting us at 79 Duke Street.
In an effort to put aside my “Winter Blues”, I turned to our archive. This year is H. R. Higgins 80th anniversary and we have so many new and exciting things planned to celebrate. But for a moment, it was amazing to look back and reflect on how far we have come since those early days back in 1942. As I sifted through our collection, I enjoyed reliving moments from the past, immersing myself in the decades of history documented.
