Welcome to the Mini Gallery Page
On this page I will show a variety of images which feature the Classic Mini from postcards to newspaper and magazine articles and personal photographs to anything I can find to make the page amusing and innovative. I hope you will enjoy this page as much as I anticipate creating it.

The Mini and Union Jack Notebook
I love this notebook which was given to me by my friend, Lorinda (isn't that a nice and unusual name) and ever since receiving this simple little gift I cannot believe how frequently I've utilised it! This is my 'web-page' notebook which I carry about with me all the time because I keep getting ideas and need somewhere to jot them down - this has saved me hours of frustration! - Thanks again!
