Miss Ida Walker (1880-1962) was a well known figure in Dartmouth. The companion of Miss Henley, of Anzac Street, she taught many local children to play the piano & organ and served for many years as the organist in St Barnabas. She wrote this account of her life in 1958. Containing many memories of individuals she knew, and of significant events such as the Second World War, it makes fascinating reading for those in Dartmouth around that time.
