Just lovely - I dont remember any quilts and old doileys etc when I was there, but they are sure in the right setting.

More wonderful photos of the past!
Talking of holding dresses out, I remember passing a very important external school exam and as a 'you did well gift' my aunt gave me one of those stiff petticoats that were worn under full skirts! They were more wearable than hoops.
