Frederick Henry Hollyer's sketchbook

Judith Thedvall, who last wrote to me in 2003, enquired about Derrick Hollyer and the sketchbook he has of their mutual ancestor Frederick Henry Hollyer (1825-1895), the Toll Collector at Braunston Lock on the Grand Junction Canal. He sketched in his toll book. Aside from the sketches I have in the Art Gallery on the website, he also sketched amusing headings to the toll table pages, the one on the left being for oats.
