That wooden dispenser on the wall just inside the door to the General Store, looks suspiciously like a cigarette machine. But by the time of ‘Hammer Into Anvil’ it’s gone, replaced by a newspaper
and magazine rack. Perhaps the new shopkeeper, Number 112, had the cigarette machine removed. Well hardly anyone in The Village seemed to smoke cigarettes, so perhaps the machine became redundant. And certainly there’s not a single copy of The Village broadsheet, The Tally Ho, for sale in ‘Arrival.’ Observe if you will the white paper carrier bags with the red label, stating “Village Food,” atop a canopied Penny Farthing.
Be seeing you
