Miss Herbert’s business card (business card)


Ellen Herbert took over Charlotte Treadwin’s business at Cathedral yard. F.F.R. Rowley, curator of RAMM in the early 1900s, remembered Ellen Herbert fondly. He described her as ‘a distinguished looking little lady, very refined features and lovely white hair, always daintily and quietly dressed’. A complimentary remark, although perhaps patronising in today’s world.
