Betty Perrett diary
A diary written by 17 year old Betty Perrett who was living in Kilkivan in the Gympie region of Queensland, Australia. It documents her life working as a nanny in the nearby town of Goomeri and later in the Brisbane suburb of Lutwyche. In the diary she discusses her social life attending balls and dances and visiting the seaside locality of Sandgate, the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, and Newstead Park. Betty also includes small drawings to illustrate her diary entries. The diary provides a frank and intimate portrayal of the life of a young woman in the early 1920s period.
