Shed and boats on beach Annotated Ellen Churchyard Water-colour

The daughters visited
their cousins in Cheltenham and were good friends.
Mary Hailes had written a poem to Ellen saying that
she wished she could paint as well as her. Maybe
this album was a reply to the poem giving examples
of Ellen's and her sisters' talents.
Provenance: Album dedicated 'Mary Hailes from
her affectionate cousin Laura Churchyard September
26th 1861' and 'Mary Hailes from her affectionate
cousin Emma Churchyard September 25th 1861'
