Today’s Sketch of the Week is an unnamed man in army uniform. Peggy has dated it 6/12/42 and signed it with the initials BN (for Betty Newgass).
Today’s Sketch Of The Week is called ‘Winter afternoon in the dog house’, featuring Jenny, Curry, Candy and Jinks. It is dated 24.2.56. It reminds me of winter evenings in her house when I was small, in front of the open fire with her dogs. It’s just missing the toasting crumpets!
This week’s Sketch Of The Week by Peggy is of a pair of galloping horses.
I have run out of dog portraits sketched by Peggy, so this week we have a cat, Gin-Gin.
The inside cover of the back of the diary is similar to the front; decorated with pictures of various bird’s eggs.
The final map in the back of Peggy’s 1936 Schoolgirl’s diary is of the Eastern United States.
Today’s Dog Of The Week is brought to you by Mr Bruce (as named on the back of the picture). It’s unclear whether this is one of Peggy’s own drawings. Any guesses on the breed?
The next map in Peggy’s 1936 Schoolgirl’s diary is of Canada and the United States.
Today would have marked Peggy’s 101st birthday, if she were still alive. In commemoration I’m re-posting a few of my favourite photos of her, and a sketch she made of her beloved David: King Edward VIII
Today’s Dog Of The Week, as sketched by Peggy, is the The Saluki, modelled by Peter or Paddy!
