|Description||These consist of four volumes of personal diaries for the years 1896 to 1899 kept by Maud Mosley in 'Houghton & Gunn's Diary', and pages from subsequent diaries containing entries for 1st and 2nd Jan for each year from 1900 to 1945, 2nd Jan being Maud Mosley's birthday, and 11 May 1920, the wedding day of her son, Oswald Mosley. |
The volumes of diaries contain daily entries which give details about Maud's daily activities and domestic routines and her comments about the weather and the health of family members, as well as recording information about her social and leisure engagements. There are also occasional comments about her feelings and opinions about her situation. The extracts taken from diaries from 1900 to 1945 contain similar information, but obviously focus on the events which took place on those dates.
