These are little paintings and sketches randomly placed in an old album I picked up for £12 at the Festival of Vintage last weekend.
What has drawn me to it, as well as it being unusual, is that all the pieces are by different people. They date from 1919 to 1926. There is also a splattering of written sayings by different individuals as well.
The book has the inscription
To Dorrie with love from Victor 1919
|This page is my favourite|
Three boys, a pipe and a pin
The signatures listed here are not the people who have done the paintings.
It is fascinating and I would love to know how it all came about.
I've tried googling the names and dates to find a connection.
The only link I have found so far is that it could be American.
The last page made me smile, it says
"By hook or by crook I will be last in this book"
Herbert S. Lovell 14/1/21
Then across the top of it D. Lovell has written
" A very silly thing to write"
