MONDAY 27th AUGUST 1888
To Alton Towers Flower Show with Bert in Frank Tipper's trap? Cost about 7 shillings for the day's outing and a most miserable afternoon - rain without ceasing. Nowhere to get out of the rain at the Towers so went and sat at the Shrewsbury Arms till coach started. Bert and I went up to see Jessie Shirley but found the old man very ill.
