I was searching through and found this post, but it appears to be blank. Could someone help me please? Is there a picture I am missing?

I risked being bombarded with Porn sights when googling for this. However I found a very informative blog (Link Below ) and an image . Hope this helps.

Such a shame if the earlier posts have gone because i found this particularly interesting, as well as intriguing. So much so I tracked down several other articles about the food of grace from Boxley.

I have an older version of my original post that was on the old forum that I may re-up at some time - I'm waiting to see if Stuart has any luck recovering what has been lost. Some other lengthy posts which took some effort, including those in Theatres, Music and Concert Halls, have also gone.
