The Edward VIII coronation mug is interesting. He abdicated in December 1936. The mugs were produced in huge numbers, so unfortunately, not worth much.

Interesting photos . You must get quite emotional when you look at them Rudebox. A good insight to how things were in wartime. Thanks for sharing.

I do, yes. Luckily, he is here to answer questions and tell us his storys.

For instance, today I asked him about the telegraph (posted pic yesterday) and learnt the story behind it.

At 8 years of age he had decided to get the train from Woodside to North Wales and the telegraph was sent to his mum!! lol. I asked why he thought it was a good idea to travel alone to wales at that age- "I like it there" He cracks me up laughing laugh He is 94 on Tuesday.

My gosh, I love his paintings. From here they look more interesting to view than Hopps. Really like the one of Wallasey Grammar School too.
Can't you find a painting in the attic ? laugh
