While it's true that Tulkinghorn is a fan of Photoshop, which has been deployed to best effect on these pages, sometimes photos can speak for themselves.
These beauties found their way into Tulkinghorn's in-tray this week courtesy of Travers Smith head of corporate finance Spencer Summerfield, to whom Tulkinghorn doffs his hat.

A true Svengali, Summerfield also worked his magic on head of corporate Chris 'Marilyn" Hale. Tulkinghorn is most impressed with Hale's legs.
