Back in the swirling mists of time

in the not-so-early, post-colonial era

there existed in the hamlet of Fyans' Ford

an old Mechanics Institute and Free Lending Library.

On entering the front door
you entered what was then called

the gentleman's retreat

Sexist, I know, but that's the way it was; mechanics being mechanics.
I daresay things have changed a lot over the years...

The library shelves were filled with e-flipbooks; unheardof at the time.
