DX/1868/1
Passenger diary of an unknown Shropshire female teacher to Nova Scotia from Liverpool on RMS Nova Scotia for two months holiday in Canada. The diary written in 1949 is of a holiday in Canada undertaken by an un-named teacher. A newspaper cutting is inserted that mentions a Mrs. Davis and a Mrs. Anderson of England, and it can be assumed the author is one of these. The diary covers the voyages to and from Canada, a stop in Newfoundland and then a stay with friends or family at Williamsdale, Collingwood Corner R.R. [Rural Route] 1, Cumberland County, Nova Scotia. It contains descriptions of farming life in Nova Scotia and comments on the abundance of food available compared with rationed supplies in Great Britain.
