Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1974.
9.5 x 5cm, 12pp (single folded sheet). Black on cheap green card with the text: "Who owned the last Norfolk Wherry" and if the card is turned ninety degrees the answer is given as "Messrs. Woods, Sadd & Moore". and a repeated drawing by Michael Harvey. The card (the least attractive, or interesting that Finlay made to our opinion) regards the loss of the wherry boats that used to be found on the Norwich Broads. Messrs. Woods, Sadd & Moore were barley and seed merchants and Finlay finds the partners' names to be evocative of the countryside and a lost past. VG+.
