Taylor-Marshall_1900

Major Taylor (1878-1932) “Born November 26, 1878, in Indianapolis, Indiana, cyclist Marshall Walter “Major” Taylor began racing professionally when he was 18 years old. By 1900, Taylor held several major world records and competed in events around the globe. After 14 years of grueling competition and fending off intense racism, he retired at age 32. He died penniless in Chicago on June 21, 1932.” http://www.biography.com/people/marshall-walter-major-taylor

The Junior Auxiliary of the Anglican Church was an organization somewhat similar to the Girl Guides or Canadian Girls in Training (CGIT), but with an emphasis on Anglican values.

These are posted here because young girls from Leslieville took part in this organization and the play, including the Tolchards.

The full text of Lindsey Barbee’s 1917 play for children, “The Little Pink Lady” is below.
