Light Straw UK
L i g h t   S t r a w   UK Mission Statement

The Light-Straw Domain (LSD) is a trip backwards in time to the not so distant days of 'old money', pioneering technologies, solid reliable engineering, childhood dreams, all of the foundations upon which the modern world relies..

"Light Straw paints a unique picture of the world as seen through the eyes of a child of the Sixties."


LSD was the abbreviation for £:s:d, pounds, shillings and pence; otherwise known as 'old money': the pre-decimal coinage of the UK until 1971.

LSD also refers to lysergic acid diethylamide, a synthetic hallucinogenic drug which was first synthesised in 1938 by Albert Hoffman.

Whilst £:s:d may not be good for your wealth and LSD may not be good for your health, the Light-Straw Domain is entirely harmless and is recommended.

Light Straw is named after the paint colour used on telephone exchange racking and equipment between 1960 and 1990.
