Postcards from the Nursery is a tribute to the legions of children's illustrators - the renowned and the unsung heroines and heroes of children's illustra-tion in the early 20th century - when postcards were an essential communi-cations medium. They, together with mass circulation magzines, provided illustrators with a stepping stone to even greater achievements. Many, like Anne Anderson, Mabel Lucie Attwell, Cicely Mary Barker and Arthur Rackham took that successful step, others never received the accolades they deserved. This book provides a glimpse of how they coped in trying circumstances. The 750 picture postcards contained within display a rich variety of illus-trative styles, covering a period of over 40 years. All the traditional nursery themes imaginable are to be found - including nursery rhymes, fairy tales, fairyland fantasy, games and pastimes and many more. In addition, the history and commercial activities of most of the prominent postcard publishers are discussed. The lives and wor
150 Station Road, Wheeldon Mill - a short stride across the Chesterfield Canal in the heart of Derbyshire - was home to the Nash family and their corner shop, serving a small mining community with everything from Brasso to Dolly Blue, from cheap dress rings to Lemon Sherbets. However, this was no ordinary home and no ordinary family. Three generations were adopted - Lynn Knight's great grandfather, a fairground boy given away when his parents left for America in 1865, her great aunt, rescued from an Industrial School in 1909, and her mother, adopted in London as a baby and brought north in 1930. Their story spans centuries and the changing society of twentieth century Britain. But more than that it is a story of community and of love. Full of colour, light and life, Lemon Sherbet & Dolly Blue is a story of what it really means to be family.
MACKINLAY KANTOR Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Andersonville She had in abundance those charms which in one way or another—but mostly in one way—have attracted men since time began. The swathings of the early nineteen hundreds failed to smother the blooming beauty of her figure; the hats of that day magically complemented the pile of shining hair over her cameo face. In a word, she had chic, that blessed something with which women of any day manage to triumph over prevailing fashion. She had, too, a station in life possessed of limitless fascination. She was a traveling milliner, which, if one was young and pretty and the year was 1911, suggested the ultimate in lurid possibilities. Her name was Dolly Hessian, she was an excellent milliner, she had come—not completely unsoiled—from Chicago, and she knew exactly where she was going. When she arrived in Lexington, Iowa, to ply her trade, she shrewdly assessed the chances for more lasting connections. She dallied secretly, and platonically, with Senator Newgate, whose unconquerable lust later led to one of the most dangerous and devastating events of her life. But with Ben Steele, the town's most eligible bachelor, she did not dally. She set about building for him a career that would carry both of them to political and social heights. Then, with success in her grasp, the tides of fortune forced upon her a tremendous choice, a decision to be reached instantly, and against a roaring, flame-lit background. There she stood at that portentous moment, a woman who had never before faltered, now wholly at the mercy of her own heart.
