A New World

placeholder gif[John Lee]

The world had changed enormously whilst Lee was in prison. 'My eye was quicky taken by something I had never seen before. It was a thing that made a noise like a sewing machine. It had big bulky wheels. Two dazzling gave it the appearance of some fiery monster. It pulsated like a thing alive. In short - I was looking at the first motor car I had ever seen.'
