In the 17th century, houses, inns and pubs were often identified by stone signs set into their walls.
A Wet Day in London (CFM, 1888)
A soggy day in London town... and the people one meets on the omnibus!

Fashionable Costumes of Long Ago (GOP, 1880)
A beautifully illustrated look at lady's fashions from the Middle Ages to the Victorian Age.
Outline Embroidery (GOP, 1880)
Elegant embroidery patterns that would be just as charming in your home today as they were over 100 years ago.
Advertising Swindles (GOP, 1887)

Eccentric Ideas (The Strand, 1895)

Creams (GOP, 1882)
A mouthwatering selection of recipes for creams, custards, and gelatines.
Etiquette for All Classes (GOP, 1882)
Etiquette "denotes the whole collection of laws by which, in all countries... 'polite society' is inexorably governed... certain rules which may appear very trifling are the natural offspring of the highest and noblest feelings."
