On the Post this week: masks; these are going to become a crucial part of our everyday lives over the next few weeks. This picture was in the Observer yesterday.  It’s a group of Californians in 1918. And it may be frivolous to say this, but look at their clothes, the women especially. If Margaret Howell or Toast flashed these coats into our inboxes, and the shoes, we would be delighted. Also the men are rather dapper. Apologies for the triviality. In fact this week’s task is making masks out of Persephone fabric. We were going to sell them in the shop for £1 but are now wondering whether in fact the shop will remain closed for several weeks. Alas.
