I am amazed that you could buy the 'Corn and Bunion Exterminater' in booksellers in both Nottingham & Chesterfield. It may be worth asking in Waterstones if you wish to try them - let me know what kind of response you get!

Over the years I have inherited a lot of family photos, which have taken some time to sort into some kind of logical order (Or what I see as a logical order!).
I have only two photos of my great-grandmother, Alice Oldknow Oldham. She was born in Nottingham in December 1886 and died aged only 40 in June 1927.
I was delighted to receive this picture and even more so when I also inherited the brooch Alice is wearing at her throat in the picture.
The centre of the brooch holds two photos and can be turned round to show either picture. You can see the photo of Alice's husband, Ernest Richardson above.
The other side of it has a photo of her son, my grandfather, Fred Richardson as a toddler.
It's lovely to have this brooch as it feels like a connection to the past & to ancestors that I never met.
