Louise (A Strong Belief in Wicker)
Carl and Minnie like fossicking through the stuff at the tip at the end of their street. They find all sorts of great stuff- a harpsichord, a penny farthing, a flying machine. One day they find an old man. They set him up in a railway carriage (also found at the dump of course). And he does old man stuff with them- he tells them stories, sings old songs, and plays 78s on his gramophone. Until one day the inevitable happens. An unusual story. Engaging, but odd.
