Canebury Hall Prospectus by Veronica C. Veare – 9781899861323
Exquisitely drawn, with the finest attention to detail, Canebury Hall is not only a Prospectus for this grim and forbidding institution, but also tells the story of two new pupils, one male and one female, who have been sent to the Reformatory, and the trials and tribulations that they encounter on their first day.
Headmistress, Veronica C. Veare, rules with a rod of iron and is proud of the school’s reputation for merciless corporal punishment. She is ably assisted by her exacting mistresses and prefects. The unlucky Miss Dobson and young Master Bates soon find themselves falling foul of the Reformatory’s strict rules and severe punishment follows.
