A Page Boy in the Making ....

Gorgeous little Phillip George wandered into my shop on Saturday with his Mum, just before the Michaelhouse/Hilton match, and was so obliging when I asked him to try on our vintage 'Page Boy' outfit. I had to whip out my camera, because he looked an absolute treat, i'm sure you'll agree.
The large Journal and Ledgers that he is leaning on are over 100yrs old and inside one of the books is a letter, written to the owners of the business, looking for a 'Bantu worker', who they think may have been killed in a train accident... the hand writing is so beautiful in these books that it just goes to show that the one thing people had more of in those days was time!
If you are looking for something unusual for your study or business these Journals and Ledgers will certainly be a conversational piece. We have also just got in a number of volumes of books by Ruskin which will add a bit of vintage style to any bookshelf.
