Who, What, Why, When, Where?
Join our archive team, Sue, Sharyn and Geoff, in an interesting morning unravelling the stories behind handwriting in the archives. Help us to decipher letters, memoirs, notebooks, and jottings of intriguing people and places.
Some questions we ask:
· Was it personal or professional?
· Does it reveal something about social etiquette?
· Why was it written?
· Why does the QWHA have it?
· What does it tell us about the writer?
· Was it friendly or unfriendly?
· Was it written in a hurry?
· Does it indicate the age of the writer?
