The Diary of Nathaniel Bryceson, 1846
Readers may be interested in another historical diary which has just been launched on-line. The Diary of Nathaniel Bryceson follows his life for a year as a 19 year old clerk in Victorian London. The diary is being published for the year 1846 and each entry is published on the corresponding date in 2010. This diary has been transcribed by staff and volunteers at the City of Westminster Archives Centre and provides a fascinating insight into life in London in the early Victorian era.
