Yesterday my stepdad brought out my late mum's tin trunk that had belonged to her mother and goodness knows who else before her.
In it I found a book which must have been a treasured item.
The book titled "Little Miss Vanity" was written by Mrs Henry Clarke and published by Blackie & Son Limited of Glasgow, London and Bombay
There are thirteen illustrations by W. S. Stacey
This book is undated and I found there were quite a few later publications but its seems this one was published around 1900.
It was awarded to my grandmother, Daisy Morgan, in 1918.

|Pressed between the pages of the book was this pansy. |
Goodness knows how long that has been there.
