Passenger diary from ship Nova Scotia, 1949



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.
