Curing drunkenness and cooking up a tasty bowl of German vegetable soup were, it seems, matters of concern to South Australian women 100 years ago…
Always fascinated by the daily life of my Ancestors I’ve found Australia’s free digitised newspapers, on Trove, as a perfect way to satisfy my curiosity and have decided it will be fun to share these discoveries with readers by participating in Amy Houstons, theme of Trove Tuesday.
The plan is to select items at random from a range of South Australian newspapers, from 100 years ago, and have a look at what my Ancestors may have been reading. It will be interesting to see what turns up.
