Lonsdale Margaret / Tutin, Sister Dora Collection.

Lonsdale Margaret / Tutin, Dorothy et al. Sister Dora Collection. A small collection of printed materials relating to Sister Dora consisting of Margaret Lonsdale’s book ‘Sister Dora. A Biography’ (1880 Edition), A commemorative brochure, edited by Dorothy Tutlin (1978), Six early 20th century post cards, two stamp first day covers (1978 & 1982), a newspaper article and an old mounted photgraph of a ‘Presentation to Sister Dora’ in June 1873. All items can be seen in attached photographs.

About the ‘Presentation Photo’. The old photographic print has been scanned in B&W. The original photo appears to be sepia toned and has age darkened over time. A sticker in the back of the ‘Wolverhampton Reference Library’ states that the photo was donated to the library in 1945. The description of the photo reads: ‘Presentation to Sister Dora at the Cottage Hospital, Walsall. By the Employees of the L. & N.W.R. Co. (London and North Western Railway Company] and their Friends. June 20th, 1873’. Please contact me if more information / photos are required.
