This is a memoir of Victoria-Ann Penny and, as you may have guessed, she is a Victorian penny. This is her story, as best she can remember it. She is well over a 100 years old so her memory might be just a little bit hazy. Born towards the end of Queen Victoria’s reign Miss Penny recounts various historical events in the 20th century including world wars and the first moon landing. She also travelled around various countries and the British Isles with her ‘owners’ and gives her impressions of the things she saw.  Reader, I do hope you enjoy her escapades.
