Miss Tooker

Mum has been a primary school teacher since 1971, and a memory came flooding back to her when she spotted this stamp drawer in my lounge room. She informed me that before the trusted MacBook and Laserjet, these stamps were in every Australian teacher's staff room. Miss Tooker would create work sheets for the children with the stamps and then make individual photocopies using the gel transfer technique. That's dedication. Learning the history of the little drawer unit made the $15 spent at Salvo's Ashfield that little bit sweeter. You can also purchase lovely new stamps from Cavallini Papers & Co. Check it out.
