Label

This amuses me for two reasons

It is the label on the back of a wardrobe that has drifted down through the family from somewhen back. It is stuck on the rear of a gentleman's wardrobe, and was probably bought by my grandparents in the early years of their marriage. You will see its context in a future post. It is part of that distillation of things which comes when a frugal family, with rather old fashioned ways, keeps odd bits of furniture from generation to generation. That family trait always makes me smile.

The name on the label also amuses me - it says Lamson Paragon Supply Co. Ltd. London and includes a Patent number and other arcane bits of information. What amuses me is that this label now lives in a room in Paragon Cottage .....
