Join the POLLY ANNA CLUB and BE GLAD!
This is one of my favourite things. As a child I adored the book Pollyanna (by Eleanor H. Porter) and the movie starring Hayley Mills. According to the British Museum this pin badge was made c.1913, around the time the book was first published. It’s only small, about 23mm wide. On the back it says “Boston Badge Co. Badges, Buttons 294 Wash’n St”
“And most generally there is something about everything that you can be glad about, if you keep hunting long enough to find it.”
I think it may be time to play the ‘Glad Game’. Would anyone like to join my Glad Club?
I am about to do a podcast about Pollyanna and just discovered the clubs existence. Thank you for your happy memory and I agree, we certainly could use a world wide glad game.
