Devon in the 1920s – Introduction

Devon History Society is collaborating with the Devon Family History Society and the South West Heritage Trust on a new research project to explore what life was like in Devon in the 1920s. We are interested in hearing from anyone whose family lived in Devon during that period and who have memories to share. We’d also like to hear from individuals or groups who might be interested in researching what was happening in their community, or in a particular topic. Our key themes for topic-based research are:

  • The Legacy of the First World War
  • Growing up
  • Rural Life
  • Holidays and Leisure
  • Progress and Technology
