Violet Austin in a trip from Slough to Burnham Beeches, - the 1910's
from Untitled: Mrs. Violet Austin memoir, pages 8-9:
In summer, we had a Sunday School treat. We always went to Burnham Beeches, just a few miles from Sough.
We travelled in well cleaned coal carts […] We sang as we went along, at the tops of our voices.
On arriving we played games, had tea […] Afterwards we spent our money, so carefully saved […]. On the way home, we sang again, jingles passed down for years, and would arrive home tired and grubby, but very happy.
