    What would you save? The Burning House

    by  • January 8, 2013 • All Fire Blog Posts., Fire miscellany • 0 Comments

    Came across this great website ‘The Burning House’

    “If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question.”

    Made me wonder what I would save – would probably involve grabbing handfuls of photos and my old punk 7″ singles – being more sentimental than practical. Oh, and the kids.

    Here are a few of my favourites.

    Someone with their priorities right……..

    This list is to “the bare essentials” what Wellington’s-army-on-campaign is to a camping trip, but I suppose we all have a different idea of which things are “essential.” *Note: The carpet underneath is not merely decorative as the idea is that all these bits would be rolled up in it and carried out the front door in one go.
    List: (Anti-clockwise from top left)
    Striped college scarves (to secure the rolled up carpet and because I like them)
    Leather collar box and stiff wing collars
    Loose organic Assam BOP tea in silver caddy (which goes in the blue pot to the right)
    Royal Lancers mess dress (and why not?)
    Green silk formal waistcoat of the Porcellian Club with jacquard boar’s heads c.1931

    English purple leather suitcase c.1930s
    Grey topper (every inch of the silk lining is covered in autographs and witty handwritten sayings from various garden parties c.1932-1934)
    Smith Woodhouse vintage 1977 port (part of a mixed case of vintage port my uncle gave me when I graduated college)
    Equestrian mounted leather pouch with fitted sandwich case and flask (don’t ride, but it comes in useful for a ramble)
    Wedgwood (huge) mug marking the investiture of Prince Charles c.1969
    Silver toddy/punch ladles c.1750s (the handles are twisted whale bone and the bowls are fashioned out of George II silver shillings)
    Gold Krugerrand given to me by an uncle on graduating college
    Topsy Turvy Criterion dvd
    Christ’s College, Cambridge carved wooden box
    Battle Creek Sanitarium silver souvenir spoon
    Ancient Order of Froth Blowers silver pin for the rank of “Blaster” in the shape of a foaming mug
    Musket ball I dug up in Fort Greene Park
    Gold monogrammed cufflinks (worn by 3 generations of Burbidges before me—with the history written on a tiny piece of paper—each owner wore them during a momentous occasion in their lives
    Pipe, tobacco and a humidor my brother made for me for Christmas (matches are from an old hunt club near where I grew up—they have Polo and fox hunting)
    Old English molds for making fancy meat pies
