On offer is an original handwritten 1909 diary by a young upstate New York girl who besides being a hard worker on the family's farm she works hard at her photography hobby which she details. Every day from January 1st 1909 through October 13th then intermittently to January 10th 1910 our unidentified writer tells of the work, the visits, both local and family events and with a subtle passion this young lady tells of her travels near and far to get photos of friends, local spots of note and even particular animals. She mentions her travels and those of her family to include Smithville, Eatonville, German Hollow, Oxford, Lull Schoolhouse, Bridlebow district, Pharsalia and many, many more. She also notes many names and occasions that local historians and genealogists will appreciate including: Dr. Stuart, the Pike girls [Hazel], Ed Fields, Benedicts Auctions, Raymond and Edna Steere, Ma Oats, Mr. Gales, George Dorrid, Mrs. Breed's funeral, Ray Lambs, Bill Beckwith, Mary Barrows, Myron and Clara Eaton, Mrs. Barnes, Addie Gales, Grace Simpson +++. Snippets include notes on: developing the film to great success, Geo and Levi dug out two skunks and got $3.50 for them, two things came from Sears last night, off to the creamery to cream ice, tapping and sugaring off maple syrup. This notebook style book is in good shape save for cover being rubbed, chipped and creased. The insides are better save for the odd spot where the pencil has been rubbed and the words illegible.
