Welcome to Peggy's life in 1936

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.

Next in the back of Peggys diary are several pages she didn’t fill in. These are for:Films Seen During The Year. A suggestion for an alternative use for the page is noted at the bottom: “Gramophone Records Heard and Required”.An Autographs page.Cricket Matches.Netball Matches.Tennis Matches – two pages.
