Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y304N/24

Scope and Contents

The caption at the bottom right-hand corner of the album page continues: 'All the girls were very clever at this, and I saw no one person specializing in the art. I was amazed to see what a mop of hair they have when they have all their plaits combed out. They use only a sharpened bone to work with. On this page there are two different styles of dressing'.
