New Year greetings from a Victorian scrapbook
To welcome the New Year, we’re sharing some Victorian greetings cards taken from a scrapbook in the British Library collections. An inscription at the front of the volume reads ‘E.M.L. from J.M. 76’. The identity of these people is a mystery. There are several items in the book linked to Church of England clergy and members of the gentry in Buckinghamshire - Princes Risborough, Stokenchurch, Horsenden, Aylesbury, Wendover, Hughenden. Does this clue help any of our readers to identify E.M.L. or J.M. in the 1870s?
