Did Walter Carroll (1869-1955, father of Ida Carroll, teacher, composer and music education professional) just compliment Joan Bamford (music teacher and former pupil of the Northern School of Music) on an egg called 1942.No.2? I feel thoroughly left out. Aside from making great eggs, Walter complements Joan on her "spirit [being] just splendid for the training of boys and girls of today."
Do you remember being taught by Ms. Bamford? Elizabeth Joan Bamford went on to become a music teacher in Wigan, earning herself an MBE for her work. Amongst her pupils was a young Sir Ian McKellen!
