1 MISS McCLELLAND 1915 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF EARLY WORLD WAR I TORONTO
TORONTO ONTARIO ON CANADA 1915 Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is a very interesting 1915 handwritten manuscript diary kept by a young lady living in early World War I Toronto, Ontario. There are entries for every day from January 1st until August 1915, after which the entries are sporadic. She was a sales clerk at Eaton's Department Store. In March she suddenly became ill and was hospitalized. She was operated on the same day, and remained in hospital recovering for about two weeks. She doesn't identify her illness. The entries take one back to a simpler Toronto as she notes her day to day life including day trips to Port Credit and the Toronto Islands, skating parties at Varsity Stadium, seeing soldiers at church, work, friends, family, etc. She also records the deaths of an aunt and uncle in Detroit in late 1914. The family name of the girl was McClelland. In august she appears to have begun seeing a young man named Harold Byers. Later we find he has joined the Canadian Expeditionary Force. This is a very charming glimpse into life in Toronto in 1915. Included is an address book useful as it lists some of the same people who are named in entries in the diary.
