Afternoon tea time

Donated by Valerie May

A delightful memory from my childhood was my mother taking my sister and I to visit her Aunt for afternoon tea. It was in the 1930s and was served on a lovely tea set on a linen tablecloth with serviettes. Many years later, I visited her cousin in a retirement village and he served me afternoon tea on this same tea set. When he died, I inherited what was left of this tea set and I still love having and serving afternoon tea.
