To join in on Victorian Kitty of Sophisticate Noir`s monthly themed compilation of posts, here are some pictures of some of my things that could be considered vintage and although they do not have any monetary value I treasure them dearly as most belonged to my parents or grandparents.
I hope you find these interesting.
Granddad at work sometime in the 1920`s
I remember this photo been always on my Grandmothers dressing table. It is of my Granddad at work sometime in the 1920`s he was a Chauffeur and my Grandmother was a Cook at a big house, like, but smaller than, TV`s Downton Abbey.
|Dad`s Pocket Watch|
My Fathers Pocket Watch, used when he was in the Police and a Bus Driver.
These Liqueur / Sherry Glasses were a wedding present to my Grand Parents, so about 1920ish. Sadly only 5 have survived the interim 90- 100 years. I sometimes have a Cointreau in one whilst I watch Downton Abbey.
Mum`s Cook Book
A 1959 Cook Book, of my mums which came with a Creda Cooker note how it is called “Housecraft Manual” and as well as recipes gives help on` laundry`, `Table Decorations` and `Taking a Pride in one`s Home`.
