I have decided to collect postcards and mail art of CLOCKS during 2015. They can be clocks in any form - I bet there is a clock postcard in your collection of cards to send. So any will be gratefully received and will be posted on this blog. If you haven't corresponded with me before please feel free to e-mail scriptorsenex at gmail dot com to ask for my address. All cards and mail art received will generate a card from me to you so if we are not regular correspondents please put your address on the card. Thank You! John Edwards

No. 15 - The University of Valencia

In May 1932 a fire took place at the University of Valencia destroying the Natural History Museum which had been established there.  This photo from Eva (who studied there) shows the fire in progress with smoke swirling round the statue of Juan Luis Vives, a 16th Century Valencian scholar and humanist.

And, of course, it shows a clock.  I would have been more than happy to receive this even without the clock because it is such an evocative image.

Your comments are always welcome - even if it just to say 'Hello'. I really enjoy seeing who has visited my blogs and what they think of the posts on them..
