Title: Miss Carter Came with Us
Description: Cape. 1973. (ISBN: 0224008919) Original Cloth, Oblong 4to. Book, ew artists have captured the flavour of an Edwardian childhood like Helen Bradley. Born in Lees, a village outside Oldham, in 1900, Helen Bradley was over sixty when she began to paint - to show her small granddaughter what life was like when she herself was a child. Her bright, teeming pictures and her own delightful narrative memorably reflect that gentle period - market day, an outing to Blackpool, fairgrounds and funerals, bread-baking, a day at the races, carol-singing in the snow. Those same loved characters make their appearance: three maiden aunts with their sweeping muslin skirts, their friend Miss Carter (who always wore pink), Mr. Taylor the Bank Manager, and the dogs Gyp and Barney. Primitive in style, idyllic in mood, Helen Bradley's pictures are as accomplished as they are imaginative. 'And Miss Carter Wore Pink', her first and best known book, will never cease to be a pleasant reminder of that time when, as Helen Bradley put it "even the weather was kinder".
