    Wonderful pictures, and a wonderful quote from Joan Collins.

    If you are in the UK, I think you can take a tour of the Morgan factory. I think you would be surprised at how they are made.

    BTW a series on Netflix I immensely enjoyed was Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in cars getting coffee . I think you would like it.

    I have read that the title of “On the Waterfront” was a change from the original since it was the same as a TV series at the time. Iv’e forgotten the rest of the story. Maybe it was supposed to be just “The Waterfront.”
