While the first three books are lesser and sporadically written they along with the full 4th book covering 1918 - 1927 make for an excellent detailed account of life San Diego in the early 20th Century.

This is supported by entries that refer to 'Cecil', his brother and 'Delia' his sister who accompanied him to The United States. There is also a… Read more

She is incredibly close with her mother, with whom she spends much of her time away from work. She is an active church goer, going every Sunday. She often remarks on who gave the sermon and its topic, though she does not reflect on the sermon herself. She also goes to Sunday School quite often, implying that she is a younger woman, probably in her late teenage years or early 20s. She lives with a man named Frank, who is most probably her husband, though she does not refer to him as such. The diary goes from the April 1921 to the end of 1924, though the diary entries are occasionally sporadic and inconsistent. In 1921, the author and her mother go on vacation in August.

The family name of the girl was McClelland. In august she appears to have begun seeing a young man named Harold Byers. Later we find he has joined the Canadian Expeditionary… Read more
