History of Artefact Text on the inside front cover of the book reads ‘Every Stamp says duty done every blank cries Shame, Finish what you have begun in the Saviour’s Name.’ Each page has room for three stamps. There are sixteen pages. There are a few stamps missing.
Each stamp is multi-coloured and each carries religious images and mottos. ‘I went to Sunday School from the age of four to eleven.’
Historian John Stedman, Rosalinda Hardiman
Previous Owners None
Special Memories ‘I was given the stamps to stick in myself for attendance. There was a community atmosphere at Sunday School. I remember the masses of primroses that were brought inside the church – they would bring a lot of earth and soil in to build the display. This image has remained with me. If you got a full book you were awarded a prize of a religious book. I don’t have a lot of objects from my childhood, I found it amongst my parent’s possessions when they died. I was brought up in Albury in Surrey, we lived in an estate cottage which belonged to the Duchess of Northumberland.’
