As time passes, habits change and technology advances; and these bottles of ink shown here are not often sought after items on store shelves anymore. When first being introduced to handwriting with pen and ink, an ink blotter was often a student's best friend. And if I had of had an option to choosing my own ink colour I think it would have been Tropic Green which would have caught my eye, however Washable Blue would probably have been the desired choice of parents. These bottles of ink shown here represent a variety of choices and colours; one of which I find quite surprising is Perma -nent Brown. However, my memories and the use of pen and ink are very faint for before I had been in school for very long the cartridge pen and ball point pens were introduced, and the demand for bottles of ink was in a decline.
