title Diary of Susan Woodman

description The account which follows is a short, edited excerpt from the diary of Mrs. Susan Woodman of Alberton. Susan was the wife of Charlie Woodman who, in partnership with his brothers, George and Tom, owned a store in Alberton and a factory at Kildare Capes. It is an unpretentious yet informative chronicle of some of the events in the life of this one family and their friends during the month of December 1895. At the time this section of the diary was written, Susan and Charlie had two young daughters, Cathy and Anne. By the standards of the day the family was a small one. The entries reveal clearly, however, that in many ways the lives of the Woodmans were intimately bound up with the extended family, and in looking through the comments for only one month the reader becomes aware of a complex network of relatives and in-laws which was a prominent feature of the more stable, less mobile society of that period.
