Dear Jansy,

Doesn't Gradus carry an umbrella? I seem to remember that Boyd thought the image made a reference to Charlie Chaplin while I thought it more likely to be Mary Poppins (don't remember if I was serious about that) - - and you or someone else sent in an image of multiple umbrellaed and top-hatted men raining down "like cats and dogs" by Magritte?
