History of Artefact It was Sarah's father's shirt. It was given as a birthday present. 'He was always given a silk shirt, half a pound of wine gums and 200 cigarettes.'
Historian John Stedman / Rosalinda Hardiman
Previous Owners Jack Abbott Hobson
Special Memories 'Father died when I was quite young and it reminds me of how he always wore a silk shirt (even when gardening). The feel of the thread from the shirt reminds me of him. I keep all the shirts that belonged to him and I re-use them.'
