Lost Signals Report Edit

For all of six weeks in the spring of 1891, Claire Saint (close friend of Laura Marx) was an enthused member of the proto-Situationist International group, the Hampstead Tree-Huggers. Beyond the occasional band performance, as pictured, the HTH held regular picnics and what would today be recognised as love-ins. Outmaneuvered and outgunned by her political rivals, Saint was soon forced to abdicate her official role as Co-Mingler of the Solitude and the Multitude. Sterile and tuneless, the HTH disbanded before the turn of the century, a victim of their own uncaring spectacle. —R. Bennetts
