Description

 

 the diary of a young Scottish girl, apparently from Crieff in Perthshire, recording a voyage from Glasgow to Montreal in May 1905 as a second class passenger on board the s.s.’Sicilian’, the return voyage from New York to Glasgow on board the ‘Cameronia’ in November 1911, and back to New York on the ‘Caledonia’.  

a charming record of the voyages, with lots of detail, as well as recounting her overland travel in Scotland and America and Canada.  

33 clearly written pages in a 29x25cm lined notebook.  

covers loose and a bit worn,  otherwise in good condition.
