Sunday  morning, Camberwell Market, just another box of odds & ends. A  gentle shake of this match box felt oddly light. Inside I discovered  nine snails shells collected from Lord Howe island in 1928, collected by  ‘Stone’, according to the inked tag. Antique snails! Vintage  gastropods! In order not to draw attention to my stupendous scientific  find, I nonchalantly offered the seller 20 cents. This event is now  referred to as The Great Snail Swindle.
