VERY UNUSUAL ANTIQUE EMBROIDERY CLOTH WITH PEOPLES NAMES AND DATES

On some are dates, little messages and little pictures all done in red thread. The dates are mostly around 1889,1890. I bought this piece a number of years ago as I love antique textiles and the names intrigued me and I had every intention of researching the names and the piece to try and find out the story behind it but I never seem to have the time. This is such an interesting piece. Please be aware that the red thread has bleed a little in places and the back of the cloth is very grubby. It is quite large and if you are interested in the exact size just let me know and I will lay it out and measure it for you.
