The Paint Box Painting Book

Bequeathed by Miss E. Smith
Museum number 1977-382

Basic instruction in the "3Rs" was the main focus of primary education, with singing, drawing, physical education and needlework for girls as extras.
Girls were encouraged to have quiet hobbies. The donor of this book, Emma Smith, enjoyed painting and drawing in her free time and also donated a portfolio of her drawings to the museum.
