Mrs. R. Downer in Cheltenham - June, the 1900's

from A Bygone Age, pages 10-11:

One lovely June I went to the G.C.H.Q to Mrs A. (a famous Army family) […] I went for many bicycle rides with the young daughter and I made several pretty dresses for her. I went to the Church parade with the family and afterwards the Band would play on the lawn outside the Camp H.Q. I made several day and evening gowns for Mrs A. She led a very busy social life.
