Child labours

16th September 2005 at 01:00
A display of embroidered samplers from 1640 to 1900 is on at Scotland Street School Museum in Glasgow until September 26. Patterns of Childhood traces the history of these "charming" examples of needlework, which probably didn't seem so charming to the girls who produced them.
