For most people living in Bermuda today it is hard to imagine anything different here from what they see around them - the neat, well-kept gardens, the miles of paved roads busily traveled by cars and cycles, and the countless houses, colourful and attractive, that seem crowded onto every available inch of ground. But over a hundred years ago what would we see? Can we begin to visualize the narrow sandy lanes travelled by horse and carriage, the sheltered cottages scattered on the islands, the sailing ships and the old churches, the people looking like our great-grandparents in the old photos albums? Over 125 years ago, young Rosabelle Hollis decided to record the events of life in Bermuda in the nineteenth century, although she thought she had few qualifications beyond "joking and flirting." The resulting glimpses of ordinary life, of events and personalities, offer a view of the lives of past generations, and provide a gentle social commentary on the happenings of the time.
