Details

Ida Lewis and Nancy Rose were two of a kind - women who tended lighthouses after their father and husband respectively could no longer enact their duties. Ida would go on to win worldwide fame and be dubbed the “Bravest Woman in America”. Nancy… would not. This episode, Violet tells the story about how the lives of two seemingly similar lighthouse keepers could result in very different circumstances.

 

Yesterday's Chip Paper is a bimonthly podcast where your hosts - two Transatlantic researchers with a fondness for the unusual - delve into historical newspaper archives to unearth forgotten stories from days gone by. From mad scientists to murderers, sapient pigs to sausage kings, the only limit to the stories we tell is that someone has to have written about it.
