Dedicated to those who thought Arthur Mee was the lead singer with Love

And while we're discussing relics of a bygone age, here's the Guardian on Arthur Mee and the Children's Newspaper.

I was a subscriber to the CN in its last days, which is a badge I wear with pride. Having come to The Children's Encylopedia late in life, I think of Mee as the author of the somewhat similar Book Of Ten Thousand Things, which made me what I am today. (Fact-worshipping polymath? Trivia-obsessed know-all saddo? You decide.)
