More stories..

Here are a couple more stories from the “found” (on Ebay) self-made book of stories and collages from the early 20th Century. Thank you again to The Vintage Toy Advertiser for identifying Avril Podmore as the child author of these. More of her work can be seen at Pigtails in Paint.

The spelling is unusual but I am reproducing the original text – not doing so would spoil the experience. Enjoy!

You can see the whole book here.
