This recently discovered diary of a young banker from Bridgnorth covers the years 1857-60, and provides an unusual insight into the life of a Victorian town, and into the heart of a young man of the time. It includes his love-letters, the coming of the Severn Valley railway, and the ups and downs of Victorian health care. An introduction sets the scene, and the conclusion traces the subsequent fate of William Fletcher and his friends and family.
