Of course, I always have a sock on the needles.............
........this one in Regia stretch.
I've managed to solve a Family History puzzle this week.
This fan was amongst other family memorabilia, but I was unable to determine where it originated.
The box says Upper Georges Street, Kingstown. I've now found out that Dun Laoghaire was called Kingstown until 1920 and the fan is decorated with Shamrocks. An ancestor was born in Ireland in the late 18c. so this fan was probably bought for his wife or daughter.
I think this is why family history is so fascinating, helping to put the human touch on what could be just names and dates.
