On the following pages, I would like to
share with you the writings, poetry and pictures that appear in the album
shown below. It belonged to a lady called Louisa
Slade ROADWAY and inside the front cover is the date 21st
May 1872. Louisa was born around 1853 in Southwark, Surrey to
a Carpenter, John ROADWAY and his wife, Louisa (nee HULBERT), I have yet
to obtain their daughter's birth certificate, but feel that this date
has some significance and could well have been her birthday.

You can find out more about Louisa and her family through
the following link:
The following pages are links to the
pictures, poetry and writings that are contained within Louisa's Album - there
are 94 pages in all, so I will add gradually. Although a personal heirloom
and treasure of
my own family, they are presented here for you to view literature and a few drawings of the late
C19th and early C20th.
Please note that these pages contain actual
images scanned from Louisa's Album, and to retain
readable picture quality,
some of these pages may take a while to download.
