Welcome to Peggy’s life in 1936
On Christmas Eve 2019 I re-discovered my Grandmother’s 1936 ‘school-girl’s diary’.
Peggy Newgass was born on February 22nd, 1920, which would have made her 100 this year. It felt like an apt time to publish her diary, one day at a time, as she wrote it, eighty four years ago.
