The Folly Flâneuse was recently introduced to a fascinating periodical called The Heaton Review. It was produced in Bradford from 1927-1934 and featured a miscellany of words and pictures: the 1934 edition included, amongst much more, writing by G.K. Chesterton, Kenneth Grahame and Dorothy Una Ratcliffe and illustrations by Jacob Kramer and Richard Eurich.
As is so often the case with vintage magazines, the advertisements are as interesting as the articles. With the new year imminent, the flâneuse spotted a page which suggested an excellent plan for 2023:The Folly Flâneuse wishes you good health, drowsy comfort and an occasional fancy cake in 2023. She herself will continue to climb as many hill tops, preferably ones topped with follies, as she possibly can.
Pictured here is the late 18th century Prospect Tower at Cotehele, in Cornwall, the object of a hill top climb in November 2022.
Thank you for reading. The Folly Flâneuse will be back in action next week.
