“went to Southampton wiv Trev. Bort record cleaner”

Going to Southampton was always something of a exciting treat.

I suspect Trev & I went on the bus.

As for “record cleaner” – that thing I ‘bort‘ – it would either have been a simple cloth or one of those small oblong brick things with felt on one surface that was ‘stroked’ across a rotating LP and then moved to the edge, pulling the dust with it.

I’d present a photo of one here, but a google search came up with nothing.

I started this post including the word “exciting”. Really wasn’t was it?
