On offer is the charming yet intriguing handwritten of Gertrude Frisch who is a very young 12 year old girl at the beginning of the 5 year diary wherein her first entry she reveals she slept in mommy's pink evening gown for New Year's Eve[she turns 13 years old July 20 1945]. Dedicated to writing in 1945, 1946 and 1947 her diary learns very little about the 16 and 17 year old girl as perhaps she has outgrown the book but by 1949 in the few entries we found Gertrude has become more teenager and lees youngster - one mentions buying a cigarette lighter for a friend and the other about filching Nana's liquor, another about her admiration for a particular boy and also that she is now full time employed. A New York girl through and through she visits and goes to Stapletons, Gimbles, Yankee Stadium, Bayonne [not so nice], meet at 4 Corners, Museum of Natural History and going to Helldivers at Tomp. Stadium +++. A casual reading suggests that they sell their house in one part of New York and then move to Staten Island. Many people are identified and one will be particularly moved to read some of her entries about her beloved Nana Cohen. Overall G+.
