Posted in the Past: Helen Baggott

A freelance editor and writer, Helen shares her love of social history through her illustrated talks. Using genealogy resources she has researched hundreds of postcards sent during the early years of the 20th century. She has published her first collection of some of the true stories in Posted in the Past and will deliver a talk titled “Posted in the Past” to the group’s meeting on Monday 18th October 2021, starting at 7.30p.m.

Posted in the Past. A soldier killed in the First World War, the man who helped keep the doors to Great Ormond Street Hospital open for more than 30 years, and a 10-year-old servant working for a laundress in 19th-century Bath are all revealed by messages sent using the first real social media phenomenon of the 20th century.
