Posted In The Past – new book by Helen Baggott

Photo of Helen BaggottKeeP Driving's guest today was Helen Baggott, a member of Dorset Writer's Network, who has published a book called Posted in the Past. Described on Amazon as "A young pupil writing to a teacher, a courting couple that might get married, a 10-year-old servant working for a laundress in 19th-century Bath, a maid who worked for Edward VII's doctor – all are connected by messages sent using the first real social media phenomenon of the 20th century. Using a genealogist's toolbox, Posted in the Past reveals the stories behind postcards sent more than a hundred years ago."
