Foster R Huntington asks the question on his blog The Burning House and invites people to post a picture and list of the things they would save and why. The submissions are an interesting mixture of the practical, sentimental and valuable and provide an insight into the people who have posted them. I love the fact that the architecture students belongings are displayed in neat colour co-ordinated rows.
My list would include:
The dog and cats (assuming the rest of the family were safe) – for obvious reasons
The computer – as it has my whole life stored on it (note to self – back up the hard drive!)
A wooden chest containing all our family photographs.
A Banksy print – as it’s worth money.
My ceramic swan and bird collection
Girls story books that belonged to my grandmother and mum.
Everyones passports and a credit card, so that we could run away to somewhere fabulous to escape our wrecked house.
