The Diary of William Gow.

The Diary belonging to my Great Grandfather William Gow which he wrote in 1887.
We found it in a box at my grandparent’s house in 2011.

He arrived in Sydney, Australia in 1886 from Scotland when he was 18 years old, and he traveled on his own. His older brother Robert was already in Sydney. William wrote this diary when he was 19. It is seriously amazing. 90% of the year has an entry.

This diary is older than Australia! I’ll treasure it forever.
