The box

I received a small cardboard box today. In theory it contains a Morris Minor fuel pump diaphragm.

It's sealed with brown paper parcel tape, and a faded label says it was packed in August 1976. That's several years before I was born. Somebody in a factory in Dudley built a little time machine to transport a small rubber disc three decades into the future. I can't bring myself to open it and find out if the part is really in there or not. It's a potential petrol pump part package and I'm going to allow it to remain that way for the time being.
