An Edwardian Advent Calendar – 4th Dec

Each day I will unveil a new entry in my Advent calendar based on adverts printed in the newspaper during the month of December exactly 100 years ago – in 1912, the Edwardian era.

Each day I will display an advert from my collection of the Illustrated London News for your delight.

    Where do I get one of these? Looks comfy, and The Front Table would be wonderful for placing a Tablet or a Netbook… When, oh when, will they invent a Time Machine?
