What the critics had to say
I ocassionally surf for titbits of info about Powell Bishop & Stonier and recently came across a contemporary review from an exhibition held in Melbourne, Australia in 1881. I think this review has been scanned into some DTP programme which "reads" the original - so unfortunately and inevitably, there are some transcription mistakes, but you can get the general idea at this link: http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/cgi-bin/paperspast?a=d&d=NOT18810106.2.10&cl=&srpos=0&st=1&e=-------en--1----0-all It appears they won 5 medals for their works at that exhibition and were a well known company for both the quality and affordability of their wares.

- Sometimes, life doesn't turn out the way you expected. And sometimes, it is exactly as it was 'meant' to be. But whilst i'm not a believer in fate or fatalism, I do believe that life is a both a learning experience and an obstacle course to be climbed and clambered over in the most creative way possible! In doing so, you'll get to where you should be even if it's not where you'd imagined.
