First book of new blog
I decided to take a look at 'The Mystery of Stockmere School' by Percy F. Westerman and note any content or references that were connected with the North of England. From first glance it seems as though it is connected with Yorkshire, though this is nowhere stated in any explicit fashion. Yet there is a connection with other Westerman stories and his home base by having the sports competition called the "Redcliffe Cup". Sinclair is picked up as a name elsewhere in his stories and the name Desmond appears for more than one of his characters in another book. I will look at the nature of this book on the next occasion.
