Dry Bones
Anybody know where Mulligan's Valley is?

Blimping the Old Fashioned Way

Discovered on Ace of Spades website, A Balloon Site, Coventry by Laura Knight. According to Wikipedia:

shows a team of women hoisting a barrage balloon into position with the chimneys of industrial Coventry in the background surrounding the spire of Coventry Cathedral. WAAC commissioned the work as a propaganda tool to recruit women for Balloon Command, and Knight's composition succeeds in making the work appear both heroic and glamorous.

I just like it cause it looks like fun.
