The project team has experimented with a variety of viewing platforms to display transcription and marked up text. We have primarily used the Andrews diaries for this work: there are 19 diary volumes, dating between 1889 and 1912. The earlier volumes are the lengthiest, while the later volumes are much shorter. We have used Volume 19 as our sample dataset, since it is the shortest and easiest to work with.
Diary 19 Sample
16th November 1912 - April 16th 1913. A brief volume giving little detail aside from lists of visitors and guests.
