Dulce Dickinson was a great genealogist. In the late '40s she gave a handwritten book of the history of the Dickinson / Lean families to her nephew, Michael Dickinson Lean. This was an unbelievable help to me in my research and, although some of it was wrong, it was incredible how much correct information she got in the days before the internet etc. I, obviously, never met her but she has a special place in my heart!

Loelia Ponsonby's book of photographic memories. A fascinating glimpse into the lives of the privileged. Pictured with (among many others) Errol Flynn and Ian Fleming (in fact, James Bond's secretary, in the books, was named Loelia Ponsonby!)
