a snapshot of family history

Todays buttons have been in my Mum’s collection for a long time.  All I know is that one of her aunts was known to be a bit “funny” and may have been at the Asylum in Abergavenny for a time.  As Mum was a child she wasn’t told about such things.  I have researched our family history with this in mind but without much success.  The buttons are metal and stamped with the words Mon: Asylum. Abergavenny.

    Thanks for these Phil. Every little bit helps in trying to piece together the jigsaw.
