General Notes

O Come all ye Faithful played the Salvation Army Band on the Friday before Christmas, and, although it had started to snow, Mother said that George and I could stay and sing with everyone, then we must hurry to get onto the tram before the mills came out. Every Friday evening the band came and played in the market under the big gas lamps, but it was only at Christmas that the band played 'O, come all ye Faithful' and While Shepherds'.
The band was lovely, and even the dogs sang, except one little dog who sat begging in front of Henshaw's Pork Stall, because all those pork pies, duck-o-muffins and black puddings smelt delicious - it was the next nicest thing to the band. There was another stall that Mother, Miss Carter, the Aunts and Grandma liked and that was the lace curtain stall. Aunt Frances is keeping as eye on Grandma who loves lace curtains and although she didn't need any, she can't help but look at them, and the year was Christmas 1907.
