Ever Remember The Days of 1913-14

Alma Caldwell's diary offers a teenager's perspective on life in 1913 and 1914. She writes about love, disappointment, and joy in a time when social life was changing. Her diary includes articles from two newspapers and a notebook of magazine clippings. It covers the summer of 1913, her junior year in high school, and the spring and early summer of 1914. In that era, silent movies and Model T Fords were popular, passenger train rides were common, and Chautauqua and Lyceum Courses were the heartbeat of American entertainment.
