Physical Details: Diary : 1 v. : handwritten ; 20 x 14 cm.

Description: Entries are very sporadic, brief, and written in two different hands - presumably Karl Zerbe and his wife Marion. They consist primarily of lists of laundry items, and one list of paintings. Some pages have a child's scribblings. In the back of the diary are lists of financial expenditures.
Pasted in front is a New Year's Eve menu and a photo of Karl (in mask and party hat) and Marion sharing a chair.
Tucked inside are a bill from the Copley Frame Shop and a handmade birthday card from Marion to Karl.
