A 1899 edition of "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen was a prized possession of my mother and one passed down to her from her own mother. I remember it sitting in the glass doored bookcase in my grandfather's house and it was a treat to look at it and turn over the delicate line drawings, protected by tissue paper.
My grandmother Alice Danson, nee English (1884-1945). She married my grandfather William in 1907 at St. Chad's Church, Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire.

A much older Alice with her three daughters, Peggy, Edith and Kathleen.
Not forgetting sons Harry and Billy.
"Pride and Prejudice" remains one of my favourite books
remembered too in the many television adaptation over the decades.
