A rare glimpse of poet, children's author and handbag enthusiast 
Thelma Allingham (right) seen here with her secretary and constant 
companion Phyliss Compton.  Ms Compton has just finished editing
Allingham's most recent book "Five Children and a Handbag" for
the well-known publishers Pomphrey & Wedgie-Macdonald 
(see post for Friday 15th April) Tamsin Hunter Wedgie-Macdonald
has an extensive handbag collection, said husband Piers Pomphrey. 


  1. What does Thelma carry in her handbag?

  2. Two housebricks for defending herself against male admirers.
