An Edwardian Advent Calendar – 22nd Dec

Each day I will unveil a new entry in my Advent calendar based on adverts printed in the Illustrated London News 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 newspapers for your delight.
