From GDP/27 Ida May Berry

Ida May Berry (1884-1959) lived in West Didsbury, near Manchester when she wrote this diary. Here, as her family move to a new house, she marks the end of her diary.

The New Year has dawned, and my diary has come to an end. All the events chronicled here happened at Northern Grove, and as we are going to remove, there will be no need to keep a further record, as the scenes are changing. We leave the delights of the “Past” behind and hope that the Future still holds Happiness in store for us.

“Sweet Memory,
Wafted by the gentle gale;
Lift up the Stream of Time,
I turn my Soil”.

January 10th 1907.
