How many other people sit there watching Documentaries. It might be the Librarian in me, but watching them touching century old papers…WITH NO GLOVES!
I was recently watching a Documentary of letters between Tsar Nicholas II and Alexandra Feodornva (quickly, the father and mother of Princess Anastasia). The presenter was saying how surprised she was at how little the ink had faded…as she touched the ink. She appeared to have thumb tacks types things, which my mum and I presumed she was supposed to use to hold the paper…She didn’t use them.
