Grandma's album 11

‘The only way to catch a motor bus.’
This surreal effort is my favourite drawing from grandma’s album. I can’t tell you anything about it. Even the signature is a mystery – it could be Phindras or Rhindras – but it is very clearly dated August 1911.

Hi Dave. Wasn't sure anyone would find these interesting. I scanned alot more pages but thought it would get tedious.
I wish I'd been a bit more attentive to my grandmother when I was young - I'm sure there would have been some intriguing stories behind some of these images and poems.

it all evens out.
