after all that rain
had the texture of twilight fireworks
gently above the ground
then bursting into a sun-splashed grey.
had gone while those
of faith pondered greater mysteries
who preferred a faster tempo
drew other conclusions from the game.
One of the reasons I have been so quiet here lately is that I have been concentrating on completing some historical analyses of the 1921 Census for Grandview. It is an unwieldy set of documents, and extracting the required data for our district has taken a long time. All of the data is now included in the latest edition of the Grandview Database.
Today, I have published the first of a short series of visualisations of that data, this one illustrating the geographic distribution of population across Grandview in 1921. It can be found on the Grandview Heritage Group website.
Future visualisations will look at aspects of the 1921 rental market as revealed by Census data. I am also working on comparisons between the data from the 1911 Census and that of 1921.
