My 1970? Trendon very minty full centre part girl is wondering what the atlas and globe here is all about. She is wearing a delightful little denim dress and shorts, one of two 70th birthday gifts from Sarah Williams of vintage-sasha and commercially manufactured Mary-Jane canvas shoes.
I wonder if there is anything inside this wooden globe.
Oh, just look, some lovely little wooden people in their national costumes.
I can recognise an Eskimo, a man from China, an Indian woman, an Egyptian.....
Now I can see what the atlas is for. (This was my Mummy's Atlas that she had to have to use in her last few years at Chaucer House School, the small private day (or weekly boarding if required) school that her brother and she went to along with other Pottery Firm's owner's children. (This superb little school has been featured previously in the blog.)
Does this one go here? Is he from this country?
I know that this little girl is English and from the United Kingdom because she had fair skin and blonde hair just like me.
