A LIFETIME – DAY BY DAY: FIVE WOMEN AND THEIR DIARIES

July 3 – November 6 2016

Diaries provide an immediacy and intimacy provided by very few types of records. When we read someone else’s diary we experience both a feeling of familiarity with our own lives and a glimpse of another time and place through the writer’s eyes. These five women from Ontario wrote about their families and friends, occupations and social interactions, and incidentally about their communities during the last half of the 19th century. More than 100 years later, these diaries provide us with important insights into the every day lives of early Ontario pioneers.

This temporary travelling exhibit is on loan to the Thunder Bay Museum from the Archives of Ontario.
