Who Were You?

When I go shopping for second hand books, which I do quite often, one of the first things I do is look inside the front and back covers for inscriptions, labels, stickers, anything in fact that sheds light on previous owners. I have a number of books now that have left clues and sometimes trails as to who owned or skipped through the pages.

This one for instance belonged to a Luther Buckler for Sunday School Attendance. Given out on January 24, 1932. What a beautiful snapshot of a time now long gone before the catastrophe of the war that followed. I wonder if Mr Buckler survived?, but whatever happened. His achievement at the Sunday School in Chapel End, is preserved in my bookcase.
