Notes from West London

The 4-Ring Man, in pictures

This piece, from 6 months ago, recalls something my father taught us when we were children. It compared contours on Ordnance Survey-style maps (which show how steep a gradient is) with the rings left behind when someone is drinking a pint of stout. It also describes the method my brother and I use to fold empty crisp packets so that they take up less table space.

That earlier piece, like most of the posts on this Blog, was all text. This site is pretty light on pictures. In the last 6 months I have started taking photos of what remains after a pint of stout and a packet of crisps have been dealt with. In most cases these photos were taken on trips to the pub with my 14-year-old son (who, as reported many times on these pages, loves going to the pub), so there are glasses of soft drinks in many of the pictures too. Our trips to the pub have been far less frequent in recent months than they were two years ago, when I reported regularly about visiting every pub in my postcode.

Here are the photos, with the date, pub (and location), and what was in the glass to begin with.
