75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Mar 18, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Mar 18, 1939
This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date. She kept a diary from 1932 as a freshman in high school until she left us, too early, in 1999.

Here is the daily entry for Saturday, Mar 18:

Up in good time. Did usual work. Making choc. cake when Norman Hastings came selling Rawleigh products. Bought some White Ointment. Ate dinner.
Went in to town. Intended on coming right home but sat on the street until 4:00. Up home a few minutes. one & finished my work. Pete hauled up a load of W. P. A. wood.
Chored, ate & worked on books.
Listened to Hit Parade and heard Creston beat Diagonal in Boys State B.B. finals.
To bed early.

My comment: What do you suppose "W.P.A. wood" meant??

Actually found an image of 1939 Rawleigh Ointment… look familiar??  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
