Scope and content

A sewing exercise book that was owned and used by Lulough Kneeshaw (nee Latimer).

From the notes of donator June Chambers:

"I interviewed Edgar & Lulough not long after we moved to Bond Head. Edgar was easy with telling his stories, Lulough not so much..."
"Lulough Kneeshaw (nee Latimer) was born March 6, 1897. She grew up on a farm north of Alliston, Lot 17 Essa & Tosoronto [Tosorontio] within earshot of Camp [Borden] where sometimes in the early morning she could hear drums and bugles...She married Edgar Kneeshaw on [January] 7, 1920. The couple lived in West Gwillimbury for a while before moving to a farm, a few miles south of Bond Head. They had one son, Keith. Lulough attended a business school in Barrie. She worked at a flour milling company in Bradford."
"My thoughts about the sewing book. Lulough was a married lady when she decided to sew. She was likely working in Bradford at the time and had access to the high school where she could have taken night classes."
