Covered School Book (Material Memory)

Year: 1910

Origin: Rotheram, Yorkshire

Donated By: Deborah Brown

Deborah and Fiona’s grandmother, Emily Brown, born in 1900 in Thorpe Hesley, South Yorkshire, was the youngest of her siblings. Deborah and Fiona inherited Emily’s 1910-1911 elementary school history book, filled with pen and ink writing and illustrations. Emily lived her entire life in her birthplace, marrying their grandfather and working as a career woman at the Sheffield Star newspaper. The book was passed down to them ensuring that their generation of the family can preserve this special part of their family’s history.
