Unseen Britain – sleepy research in a library

Sleepy research in Scarborough Library

The picture is not very clear but catching the moment I think was perfect.

I walked into the reference section in Scarborough library on a very hot summer’s afternoon and this gentleman looked up from his papers to welcome me.  I settled into my research which was disturbed by a series of loud unfettered sneezes emanating from his nostrils.  Things settled down and a few minutes later I looked up and there he was in deep afternoon slumbers.

It was just too good an photo opp to miss.


About alangrenville

I live in southern Britain near the fabulous New Forest. While studying for a BSc in International Studies I have developed a strong belief in 'NIBAW' or 'nothing is black and white'. Hence my favourite saying "Too often we...enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought" (John F Kennedy).
