The Furthest Station

Don’t get me wrong, I like the countryside. In fact, some of my best friends are geographical features. It’s just a tricky place to operate in.

Boudicca’s burial site at Kings Cross—remember that?”

We’d done it as a field trip—Platform 10 at Kings Cross, which was reputedly the last resting place of the woad-wearing warrior woman. We hadn’t found anything, but it had led to a lively discussion about the practicalities of attaching blades to the wheels of your chariot. We got so carried away that a posh middle-aged white woman, no doubt waiting for a train, congratulated me on being an excellent father and for fostering an interest in British history in my daughter.

“Well done you,” she’d said.

Abigail said she was dubious about the collection of faded sepia prints we’d unearthed in the mundane library. She’d done her own experiments both with her phone and a vintage Leica camera she’d found inside one of the storage cupboards in the lecture theatre.

“What were you even doing in there?” I asked.

“Having a look around,” she said.

“How did you get them developed?”

“There’s a darkroom in the metal working lab.”

And she’d taught herself photographic developing off the internet because of course she had.
