Product description

OTHER TIMES, OTHER PLACES is a book based on the unique diaries kept by two ordinary young Scots at two different times on two different sojourns in two different continents in the 1930's. The two Scots are the author's Mum and Dad whose observations of travel to and life in Western Australia and then Sierra Leone give a fascinating glimpse of a vanished era. The modern reader is given a picture of the background of both diarists in industrial central Scotland and of the society which shaped their attitudes to the pioneering culture where they found themselves. Comprehensively researched with helpful Notes and Appendices which explain a wide range of topical or technical allusions, the book includes many hitherto unpublished sketches and photographs and the cooperation of Family Historians has enabled the inclusion of current illustrations of those scenes.
