it's full of christmas card lists and gidt lists spanning from 1929 to 1942.
and the best thing is you can make up a story
'yes well this was the last thing my great grandmother gave to me before her death. It belonged to her only child who died at the age of 9 from TB'
and then they may offer you more money!
my powers of deduction tell me that this notebook might actually be from the 20s.
it had a series of really old letters in it, on ancient brown paper. Some yorkshireman writing to his friend, just informing him of day to day stuff he's done. I also bought a book in a second hand place, and it had a load of postcards in it with random notes like "gone out, left food" on them. They were quite old as well... probably 60's?
I took it home and read it, it was really interesting*. About 2/3rds of the way through though there was this totally random photo inserted, of a woman with a massive mullet, I'd assume from the mid 80's, just sitting on a sofa, I guess she was using it as a bookmark. I think I left it where I found it in the book and have since lent it to a friend to read, so either he clearly hasn't read it, or didn't think the photo was actually funny, which it definitely was.
*Interesting fact (or two) about L. Ron Hubbard. He spent most of his middle-age life in East Grinstead in Sussex, during which time, he invented a machine that "proved" that tomatoes had feelings.
