June 1992, London
Prior to heading off to Central America, I had arranged to meet Moana in England, where she had been working for the previous 2 years. I was also very keen to catch up with the Holbrooks and the many friends I had made on my last visit to London. What was supposed to be a one month visit, turned into 9 months by mutual agreement with Moana. Rather than eat into my savings, I decided to earn some money to support myself and make the most of what that wonderful city has to offer.
I started to sell my hand made cards around town. Among the numerous stores I successfully approached was Liberty in Regent Street. I made three ranges of cards exclusively for them. On one visit to deliver an order, I discovered they were looking for casual staff for a sale period, so made a successful application. After working as a temp for one month, I was offered a two day per week permanent part time position.
As you can see the booth photo was taken for my id-card for my temp job.
