PICTURE SHOW ANNUAL 1928
"After my father passed on in 1968, (when I was 19-years-old), I found a copy of the “Picture Show Annual 1928” which he had kept. In the book, he wrote that he bought it on December 10, 1927.
The book is about movies, and actors and actresses of that time. He had kept it for 40 years and I concluded that he must have liked the book. I took the opportunity to keep it as a family ‘heritage’. By now the book is a cool over 86 years. My thought is to pass the book on to my son and for future generations to keep."

"The heirloom is a drum-shaped flowerpot stand which has an embossed flower motif and which still retains a bright glaze although this item was purchased in the 1920s by my paternal grandparents.
As a young boy in the late-'40s, I first saw it in my Aunt Luna’s home. She was my dad’s eldest sister with whom my widowed grandmother was staying. Subsequently, when my Aunt Luna emigrated to Perth, Australia, in 1970, she distributed some of the heirlooms to the grandchildren and I received this item, which I had admired since 1948. It is 580mm height and 250mm diameter."
