Troubles & Triumphs of Little Tim

Troubles and Triumphs of Little Time. Author Gregson Gow

Printed in the Book is the name Robert Roskell, Brook Farm Rawcliffe, 15th Sept 1804.

Maggie Grant, 1903

The sampler on display was hand-sewn by a young girl named Maggie Grant, in 1903. In an elementary school at St Joseph’s School probably aged between 8 and 10 at the time. Used as a test before a betrothal arranged by the family for the prospective husband’s perusal. Isn’t it amazing all the patience and care that has gone into producing it. We are putting together a crowd-funding campaign at the moment, which will feature this item. Check back to find out more soon..
