Goodnight Uncle Arthur!

As promised, here are a couple of photos from the vintage book my big sister (Leah) sent.
Some are really sweet, like this one below.

And some are just weird, like this one below!

'As Daddy reached for his Bible, a deep scowl came over Vivian's face'.
(LOVE the chairs!)

I have a couple of chairs similar to that in green vinyl!

Oh my God Claire, I have a couple of Uncle Arthur's classics too! I find them ultra creepy.
I particularly cringed when I read the story of the Wasted Sixpence in Volume 42 (!!!!) Silly Judy put her sixpence in the jukebox and heard "a sound like a frog with a sore throat, a dog baying at the moon, and a little boy banging a drum-all rolled into one"
That horrid noise is jazz, and not worth listening to in her father's opinion.

I have a few Uncle Aurthur books as well. I think they are an absolute hoot!

heh heh ... all I can think of is Glenny Robbins ;)

And yes, why was Vivien scowling, and OMG to what Emma wrote about Jazz !!!! Bizarre..

Toria said...

Yeah, I want the rest of the story - just why is Vivien scowling?

Lark said...

Yes, I have some of these too, picked up at op shops, they are just plain weird!

Well I must say, I do understand, because, whilst not a heathen, I do tend to scowl the minute anyone reaches for a bible.
