FROM 1939, THIS DIARY DOCUMENTS EACH DAY IN TINY FLOWING HANDWRITING. In early February – it is all about visiting and sewing.
A closer look shows that this is a student diary for 1939; from Taylor’s College Melbourne. There is a traditional information page and an innovative blotter reminding the student of additional classes and services.
A closer examination of the pages, show that our diarist remains more preoccupied with domestic calling like the care of her mother and her visits with Frank which are still happening in November. Maybe this diary is a gift from Frank and Miss Henry is not a student?
