    This is the most satisfying jigsaw I have ever done. The composition, with its subtle variety of detail and texture, is superb, and exactly what a puzzler wants, but what I enjoyed most was that as I got into it I developed a real feel for life in Melbourne in 1950, and could almost imagine myself part of a period I never actually experienced.

    I hope there will be future jigsaws. Getting the right photo, with that abundance of detail and interest, might not be easy, but there should be something suitable in the archives. The Paris end of Collins Street in the 1950s would be one potential subject.
