Whatchamacallit 145: Up (and Down)

Up

Back in December 2013, I visited London to see Book of Mormon, among other things.

It was during that trip that I acquired this book, “Up.”

If you flip the book and turn it over, the book is “Down.”

The book is actually a flipbook – and as you flip the pages, a bridge rolls up, or rolls down, depending upon which way you’re reading the book.

They roll the bridge on Fridays at noon – or at least they did in 2013. Normally it is down, allowing people to save a good 45 seconds while walking around this part of London.

After watching the bridge roll and unroll twice, they handed out copies of this book to people who were watching – since then, this book has rested on the shelf behind my couch, so I see it regularly and am reminded of this quirky, fun, bridge in London.

I blogged about it in “Rolling up the bridge in London…


During the Covid-19 crisis, I am going to try and make a point of writing a blog post about an object in my home.

We’ll see how long this lasts.
