Read by Louise Williams: Library Assistant

Mrs. B. Woodrow

Liverpool, [1908?]


The tower collection can tell us much about social history in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This short practical pamphlet encourages people to take up chicken rearing. The author, a Mrs Woodrow of Harrow, notes that rearing chickens is ‘One of the least expensive, most enjoyable, scientific, interesting, and healthy hobbies that can be undertaken.’
