So yesterday I did something I've been meaning to do for a while - create a free space page. I decided to make one to pull together all the sources I can find on an extinct occupation, spar ornament manufacture, or bauble making, as it was also known. (see link in bold, below)
Once I'd done that, I created a second page, in order to collate information on the practitioners of this craft industry.
I'll be adding to this every time I come across a spar worker in the census or in directories.
I'm quite pleased with my first attempts. I'm ill at the moment with bronchitis so I just fancied doing something for a change. I'd wanted to collate info on spar workers for a while and this way I don't create lots of unconnected/unattached profiles.
