Found in a Sewing Basket
The Cataloguing Team at Old Gippstown has been working its way through some of the sewing baskets in Sarah Carter's shop.
I have posted a picture of this basket before:
But today we got into documentation of its contents. And found this:
It is lace wrapped around a photograph roughly chopped to make a holder.
I took a quick photo, just realising it was people. It was only when I got home and looked at the photograph on screen, that I realised it is probably a group of Australian Light Horsemen from World War I.
Here is a closeup. The largest size is HERE.
Wouldn't it be interesting to know the story of photograph.
Why was it of so little value that it was cut into and made into a bit of cardboard for winding lace?
