One hundred and ten not out

Having experienced an extended icebound stay in Birmingham last winter, eight weeks  if my memory serves me well, I gained a sense of what  our second city has to offer.   With this in mind I headed off to the superb indoor market adjacent to New Street Railway Station on Saturday to buy some ribbon from the haberdashers stall.  
When I returned to Yarwood I threaded ribbons on the ribbon plates and yesterday Himself  hung the plates on the front bulkhead in the saloon.
