One of my treasures is my Grandma’s autograph book. My Uncle D gave it to me the first time he and his family came to Australia to visit us.
It has a burgundy coloured cover, and “AUTOGRAPHS” is embossed within a decoration. The inside cover reads:
With love to Sophia from Nellie xxx
The earliest date accompanies the first entry, again signed by Nellie.
Tommy Tucker – Empire Westhartlepool 1927
Remember, Sophia. Parents are
like garden seeds you never
know their value until they
are under the soil
Yours for ever
Flicking through the pages, most of the entries appear to be from fellow dancers and players in pantomime and theatre. I will certainly look forward to researching the plots, theatres, and autographs.
