Ellen’s Diary was a daily column that was featured in The Guardian newspaper in the mid-1900s. It provides a fascinating glimpse into both rural women’s history and the agricultural and natural history of Prince Edward Island. The GeoLab Team shares one of the published columns every Thursday from that date in history. The source of the excerpts is
