Worth a Thousand Words: Carrington Album

Carrington Illuminated Appreciation Album Cover

What a heckuva fella Lord Carrington must have been! BibliOdyssey tells us:
From 1885 to 1890 Lord Carrington was a popular Governor of NSW. He and his wife were held in such high regard by the people of NSW [Australia] that a grand series of presentation albums was created by various community associations and districts to honour their service and bid them farewell when they returned to England at the end of their tenure.
Go read all about it and see the many gorgeous album pages and covers featured there.
