New Object of the Month
This months Object of the Month at the Museum is a booklet from around the 1940’s which is all about taking care of children. The booklet is called Hints to Mothers on the treatment of their children from teething to teens. It has lots of information on everything which could happen to a child when they are young and gives mothers advice on how to deal with these different problems.
The display features just some of the pages which are in the booklet as we could not fit all of them into the cabinet. The ones featured are the ones which were suggested to the Museum on our social media posts which we posted asking what specific pages people would like to see in the display.
This is a list of all of the contents of the Booklet:
