1946 Wildflower collection

In 1946, Charlie Yeates and his daughters Jennifer and Gillian, went out into the countryside to gather and record the wildflowers they found in the downland surrounding Brighton. At every opportunity, every weekend and holiday, they would head out and walk for miles and miles. Once home again, the girls carefully pressed the flowers and Charlie labelled them in his beautiful script.
These albums of pressed flowers are a unique record of the local flora from nearly 80 years ago.
