Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

(The more things change, the more they remain the same)



A recent family get together (the Christening of our latest baby, Peter) led me to re-create the photo on the left thirty years on.

From left to right, my sister Madeleine, a 16 year old me behind the wheel and my Father. The car is a Slough-built ID19 of 1961 vintage and despite being only six years old, it is already showing the ravages of the tin worm and fading paintwork.

Thirty years later and here we are again with a green big Citroën - on this occasion it's a 1995 XM CT Turbo VSX. The nose of my Father's Xantia can be seen in the far left of this picture.
