'I have been a family historian for more than 40 years, and a professional historian for over 30, but as I read it, I was constantly encountering new ways of looking at my family history....Essential reading I would say!' Alan Crosby, WDYTYA Magazine

‘Japanese paper umbrella. Where there is a knob or hook in the ceiling above a dinner table, from which the umbrella may be suspended by means of a chain or cord, twined with evergreen, this little addition to the dining-room decorations is well worth carrying out.’ 
The Morpeth Herald and ReporterDecember 4th, 1909
