The Diary of Jane Glenn
£2.50 – £3.50
Transcribed exactly. This day by day diary (1917) for one year of a Ruskington farmer’s daughter on the edge of the Lincolnshire fens during The Great War gives a most graphic picture of rural life not quite so divorced from the war as might be thought with airships and Zeppelins overflying the farm and bombs dropped nearby.
There is a brief assessment of the wartime state of farming and a list of some 1917 household shopping prices included in the back of her diary.
