Here’s the cover of a book I got from my Grandmother’s sister – they emigrated from Ireland in the early 1900’s. It’s the Official Handbook of the Irish Free State, printed in 1932.
The book is supported by advertisements in the back. Like this one:
Would you like to See Ireland First? In October? Then join me and Theresa Gaffey for a Knitting Tour of Ireland. We have been asked to host this tour, organized by a local travel agent. The pace will be relaxed, the company good, and the price reasonable. Fly from anywhere and meet us in Ireland. Remember,
To Fashion Art that still shall be Supreme, the Hand Retains the Key.
Now I’m off to bake some soda bread. No caraway seeds, EVER.
