Maud Clarke in Tipton - between 1891 and 1893
from Untitled: Maud Clarke memoir, pages 12-13:
[Maud Clarke recalls in detail her experience of infant school, where she attended from age four to six]
The nursery rhymes were learned, and we sang very delightful short songs, as we danced around the maypole, which was fixed to the middle of the floor in the main room.
Each boy and girl, one behind the other, held a different coloured ribbon, in order to plait and unplait the maypole, whilst the teacher played a pretty tune on ‘The harmonium’, a sort of combined organ and piano.
