Fred Singleton helped in the reconstruction of Skopje after the 1963 earthquake, with a group of Bradford Institute of Technology students.  Special Collections contains objects presented to the students by their hosts and Fred’s own, very large, archive.

Regular readers will notice I’ve changed the Theme used for this blog (layout, typography etc.).  At the time I chose it, the old theme, Ocean Mist, was the one which best met my requirements for this blog.  WordPress recently added this new one, Coraline, which I think is more legible and deals better with the “widgets”, pages, headings etc which make a blog easy to use.  “Widgets” by the way are the functions in the sidebar such as email subscriptions, tags and categories.  Hope you like it.
