Another interesting cinderella find to day is this little 12 page book (it measures 4 x 5.25 inches) published by the Sally Anne. It is dated 1926 on inside front cover with the name Mrs. Merryweather, Carleton St. Fredericton written there.
It is a history of the Salvation Army written for children, and there are spaces for the kiddies to stick 36 stamps. Unfortunately there are only 7 stuck in the book, so someone wasn't trying very hard!

Front cover



An inside spread



And the labels present.
The Salvation Army Band



The Orphan Asylum at Clapton, London. edit- On re-reading the passage, the centre of this building was an open court, which was later roofed over and seated, becoming what was known as the Congress Hall. I didn't see the name over the portico on the stamp until looking at it online.



The founders second daughter, Miss Emma Booth



Slum work by the Cellar, Garret and Gutter Brigade



Captain Florence Soper (I love a woman in uniform!)



The founder, General William Booth, traveled extensively around the world. Children were his 'Young Soldiers'. Here we see him 'speaking to and blessing an Indian Junior.'



The General was 'promoted to Glory on August 20, 1912'. Quite a euphemism! On August 21, William Bramwell Booth was appointed the second General of the Army. No sense waiting around.
Here is the new General's wife, Mrs. General Booth (really, that's what they call her - no name of her own).



Very pretty labels, really. Now I'll have to be on the look out for the other 29.

Sorry for the poor images but this is a copy of a copy that I subsequently scanned for this post from some material given to me years ago. I never did find any of those so-called cinderellas as they are apparently hard to find.

The Album referred to in the initial scan was the second of two versions that were primarily used in the UK and Canada, the first one dating from 1917-1919 (as shown by the content of the following scans and was unnumbered and with plain pages); whereas the second one (as per the initial scans in this thread) had numbers on them and were included in an album that provided descriptions for each stamp:

On top of things again, wt1. Terrific!
I see that the Orphan Asylum/Congress Hall in my book is called the International Training Garrison in yours.
I also notice that some of images changed from the earlier version you show to what I have.
Great! Two sets to find.

To follow up, on the inside front cover of the book, it describes how the children are to acquire these stamps.
Similar to what's stated in the top of wt1's page, children were to 'fire a Cartridge of at least a halfpenny per week, a 'Stamp' will be given at the end of the month.'
You 'must' pay weekly, but could catch up with your arrears at the end of the month. It took three years to fill the stamp.
A half a penny a week must have been a fortune to a little kid in the early 20th century.

Well done all concerned.

Purchased a collection of stamps that had once belonged to a career employee of the Salvation Army. Among the stamps I found a piece of old Letterhead.
