Lee Miller at the V&A

I was going to keep it to one blog post per city, but I keep forgetting to mention things like the strange record store I found in Oxford which seemed to have been frozen in time at the start of the CD era – all vinyl, racks full of indie bands like the Woodentops, quaint category names (“RAP”, “NEW WAVE”) – and that would be a shame. So I’m going to do one blog post per day of trip.

Otherwise, I wouldn’t have anywhere to mention the excellent Lee Miller exhibition which I saw at the V&A on Tuesday once I was back in London. Because there was so much stuff in the Miller show, I couldn’t really do justice to the rest of the museum. I did manage to find Sir Watkyn Bassett’s cow-creamer in the silver section, but that was a happy accident.

On the way back I went to Harrods. It was less snooty than the David Jones foodhall in Sydney.

  1. Are you sure you didn’t go to ‘Arrods? Harrods requires one to be known, on the register, and fucking a royal.

  2. I may have got treated with more obsequiousness than I would have expected because a functionary smashed a pot of marmalade in the aisle in which I was browsing.
