Collectanea Cloacopapyrologica 3

Exhibits from the Maxted Collection of Cloacopapyrology

3. New and revised list of Drayton Mill Toilet papers, c.1900.

The collection contains two lists produced by the Drayton Mill. This is the earlier of the two, issued from the Drayton Paper Works, London S.E. in about 1900. The later one was issued from South Park, Fulham, London S.W. in about 1910. Some of the same blocks are re-used in the later catalogue. The present list contains some annotations in ink, probably made by the manufacturer.
