Beautiful Vintage Journal

This is a vintage journal (my hubby owns) that was made by an unknown person who was incarcerated in Stanley Prison (Hong Kong) during world war 2.  Hand bound and illustrated with the most delicate writing.  I have no idea what it says but I just love to look at it and hold it.










Also this piece of artwork drawn by an inmate at the prison (and signed).


Amazing slice of history
