      You probably thought it's knot funny, but there's a twist at the end.

          Something a little unusual here.

          In the video, one of the potential buyers mentions that possessions of men like Berry were destroyed in 1895....Home Office regulation. Stewart corrects him and says either 1892 or 1893.

          Anyway...if that was so, perhaps the rope auctioned in 1906 wasn't Berry's ?

          Whaddya think ?

            Hi Howard

            I've tried a couple of times...the link places what appears to be an avi download or downloader onto my pc...however, clicking on it results in a screen message suggesting an incomplete or corrupt download, which I'm unable to get completed or restarted. Not sure if this is to do with my pc setup/virus protection or is more widespread. Could somebody else UK-based have a try please and see what result they get?

            Cheers

            Dave
