A quick precis of the story so far.
Lucinda and Kate are childhood friends .
As a young woman, Kate was invited to join her cousins in France, and through them mixed with a wealthy circle of the 'elite'
She has been staying in a Chateau, has a new companion Genevieve.
They have been wined and dined and have been sampling the delights of Paris around 1900.
Lucinda is now an old lady still living in England and looking through her scrap book of memorabilia of bygone days
If this is your first visit and want to see previous pages you can see them here and here and here and here
Lucinda kept all the letters and postcards etc and here are some of them.
Kate sent little bottles of eau de cologne.
The bottles have long since gone, but the labels, now yellowed with age have been pressed and saved on a sheet of French writing - which she glued on with flour and water.
Kate and Genevieve were swept away by the latest fashions and used to send paintings of the latest fashion items to Kate.
The shoes particularly amazed Lucinda - who wore leather ankle boots for Sunday best!
Like these - the height of fashion!
Some of Kate's letters survived over the years, but the gold leaf on her napkins and writing paper had almost all flaked off.
But despite the ageing the letters were still legible.
