This is the story of a lady. A lady I have grown to love, admire, and continue to be intrigued by. And after many years, I have finally decided to share her story.
This is the personal diary of a wife and mother living in Akron, Ohio just before the Depression. These are her words transcribed from her personal diaries beginning in 1925. Fascinating stories from the mundane like household chores and shopping lists, to her frustration with depression and an unhappy marriage.
1.Wonder who M. Zimmerly is...$25 is a lot of money for them. I haven't found a "M Zimmerly" listed anywhere online for that year that I can confirm. There's a Mary and a Maud in the vicinity, but nothing showing on the 1920 census for Akron.
