Have the LP here - somewhere.
Zither.

I remember Shirley Abicair and her zither from 50's/60's TV. No decent clips of her though.

Looks better in the hands of Johanna Söderberg.

A little story about that which I may have told you before.

When the single came out I read a review about the album which said not to bother buying the album as all you needed to buy was the single. I thought 'Pfft' to that and bought the album (an LP!) and played the first side of it. From that day day to this I still haven't got round to playing the second side! :rofl2:

I gave up buying singles and always bought/buy albums.
I found that I often tired of the single but there was even better material on the albums for not much more money.

Have several by Zhong Ting Ting. There used to be lots of her stuff on YouTube but it all seems to have disappeared.

Elements Z

Zinc and Zirconium

Zinc is fairly common or garden, surely someone has some Galvanised something or other lying around sheds/garages
to bring forward with a photo.

Zirconium be creative...

As Neil has reminded me - look around the home!

Don't have a zither, but I do have a ZIPPER!!! (lots of them actually - this jacket alone has 8 zippers)...

This one's on a Kathmandu jacket, which is a New Zealand company. However there are no prizes for guessing where the jacket was made:
Spoiler: show
China
Edit: DOH - beaten by Mick while I was chooking around taking the photo and counting zippers...

Surely a car savvy FCF congregation will recall Ziebart

This one is on a 1981 Vauxhall Cavalier 2000 LS Saloon auctioned at Hampsons

Whatever happened to Ziebart! :?:

I remember that film very well Paul, one of Michael Caine's early roles around the time of Alfie!! That of course was the name of the lead character with all the spots, or as Jasper Carrott would say Zits!! :-D
