Christies veranstaltet Anfang September die Versteigerung Out Of The Ordinary und die Items dort sind stellenweise ganz, ganz fantastisch: vom Skelett eines Dodos und einem ausgestopften Modell einer zweiköpfigen Kuh über einen Pinball Wizard Pinball bis hin zu ollen bemalten Äxten und einem Stück Kuchen von Queen Elizabeth IIs Hochzeit – toll!
