Charles Arthur Skull born 1879

I married Elsie Nicholson
From a prosperous family
Her deafness won’t suit everyone
But her name does much for me.
And so I’ve risen up the hill
Following dear old Dad
I have some way to get to still
But I think it’s made him glad.
I hope for boys (and also girls)
Who’ll work within the firm,
To pay for mansions and for pearls
When it becomes their turn.

Charles Arthur was the youngest son of Charles Edwin Skull. Sadly neither of his two sons wanted to work in the chair industry.
