.klub retro: fotografický archiv a deníček z počátku války

Šechtl a Voseček, Tábor: archiv z let ~1850 - 1920+?...

Musím si tady schovat tenhle odkaz na fotoarchiv, který jsem nedávno opět vytáhla na světlo díky novému klubu Retro na Okounu, neboť to miluji:

"Rodinnou tradici založil roku 1865 Ignác Šechtl (Schächtl). Na jeho práci navázal Josef Jindřich Šechtl, Josef Šechtl a Marie Šechtlová. Z jejich činnosti se zachoval tématicky bohatý archiv čítající statisíce snímků. Náš foto-archiv obsahuje, mimo jiné, studiové snímky (portréty a skupiny), místopisné fotografie, umělecké fotografie, reportážní snímky i dokumenty. Na těchto stránkách najdete pozvánky na akce, virtualní galerie fotograií a především pravidelně obnovovaný digitální archiv (fotobanku)."

deníček sl. Norah aneb tweety z WWII, Anglie, září 1939
https://norahsdiaries.wordpress.com/2013/06/06/storying-norahs-diaries/

It became clear early on in this project that I can’t just present Norah’s diaries to the world as they are. They are pocket diaries – Letts’s School-Girl’s, Railway Clerks’ Association – which contain tiny little windows for daily entries. They are not literary or confessional diaries, nor are they about special occasions, personal crises or spiritual journeys. Ordinary, private diaries, they were not written to be read and are not always understandable to a reader unfamiliar with their context. They contain very little retrospection, characterisation, little in the way of a story and are presented in a style which is disjointed and telegraphic. As was pointed out to me recently, they are written like tweets. Here is an example from fourteen year-old Norah in early September 1939, as Britain went to war:

1st September 1939. Hitler declared war on Poland. Had to dye curtains. Everyone got wind-up. Ma went to help evacuation kids in. Not many came. Balloon barrage over Derby. Went to Helen’s with Pop. Everyone must have dark curtains. Sunny, cold.

2nd. Hitler bombed six Polish citys. Ma went to help with evacuees. Frank had letter from Jean! Chris had fight with Mrs Marcer in street. Pa went to match. Terrible storm. Four balloons burned down. Derby beat Villa 1-0. Stoke drew 2-2 with Middlesborough.

3rd. Got up latish. England declared war on Germany at eleven o’clock. Terrible. Chamberlain spoke on radio and King at 6. Helen & Joe came up. Stormy morn. Sunny.

4th. Washday. Helen came up. Went down to Hill’s. Germans torpedoed English ship ‘Athenia’. Most people saved. Air raid warning during night. All got up at 6 O’clock. False alarm. Sunny.

5th: Worked in garden all morning. Ma and I went down to Helen’s for tea. Went down to Baum’s etc. Jean is a nice kid. Sunny. Cold. Air raid attempt on London failed.

6th: Did gardening all morning. I like young Spooner. Went down to P.O. and saw Peggy, walked round with her. Made a new black-out with cardboard. Sunny.

7th: Worked. Helen came up. Went in garden. Gave doll and cradle to Jean. Very pleased with it. Ma, Pa and I went down to Helen’s for tea. Helen and Joe came up here. Sunny.

8th: All cinemas, theatres, football etc. off. Nothing much happened. Helen came up. Germans tried to get into England but failed. Cool.




And so on. It’s delightful, I think, and creates lots of lovely images, but you wouldn’t carry on reading for 80,000 words, presented as tweeted diary entries. I wouldn’t either, and Norah was my aunt.
