Lorna started a diary in September 1939. At the time she was aged 25, and had returned to live at home in Malvern with her parents following undergraduate study at the University of Cambridge.

In one of her entries Lorna said:

I shall bury this diary so deep that one day, in a saner world, someone may find it and know that the last legions of civilisation meant not domination but good, even though their hands were feeble and their foresight all too dim.

As is the case for all other Blipfoto journals, the blipper - a member of Lorna's family -  is posting daily photos in the present against the appropriate date. Most photos will be portions of Lorna's diary (from the past, exactly 80 years ago). In these cases the main narrative is a transcript of the diary entry. When other material is posted, the narrative will be provided by the blipper.
