How we used to do it...Autograph album...10th July 1945.

Another page from Ms. Richardson's album, which was added at a time when there was rationing in the UK.
Pieces of fabric have been cut out and glued to the page in the shape of a dress, and an ink drawing added to the top.
The inscription reads "No coupons required". A nice bit of humour, from hard times.
What I love about this book, is that the friendships are remembered by the words people have chosen to write, or the little art works they have created.
