  1. I don't think it was uncommon to refer to people as Mr. or Mrs. x y z. Don't think many people were so informal as to use first names.

    Love the old photo, wonder if you could look through all year books in the area and come up with a match at all?


  2. Don't want to spoil the surprise, but I have one single photo of a member of the family that will be published with the coinciding diary entry.

  3. Waists would be shirtwaists = blouses.
    I'm enjoying the diary, quite a lot!

  4. Her husband really runs off a lot, now doesn't he?
