Diary of A Poor Suffolk Woodman & I Read it in the Local Rag
The Diary of a poor Suffolk woodman is a special publication - because it features a poor man's diary. Few of William Scarfe's class in the early 1800s could write well enough to produce more than fifteen years of a journal of his life and village. Now, over 150 years later, we are able to share his world and enjoy the social history of the 1830s through his words.
I heard it in the Local Rag is a selection from the Suffolk and Norfolk newspapers from 1701 to 1900. From Ipswich to Kings Lynn, Bury St Edmunds to Norwich, Great Yarmouth to Ely, the newspapers of East Anglia are represented in this book through tragic, humorous, heart-warming, inventive, pompous and extraordinary stories.
