A lost calendar

I found this calendar for 1960 when sorting through material I used to write my novels  I was able to fix the dates of events in Boy & Girl which began on Friday May 13th 1960. I found it important to know exactly when each scene was happening and I could also work in historical events. Here’s the opening of the first chapter:

Peter glanced at the date pinned to the school notice board: Friday, May 13th 1960. For a Friday 13th, he’d managed to escape the worst so far, but who knew what catastrophe might be waiting in ambush. Peter looked back over his shoulder as he broke into a run. There must be a clock somewhere. He was going to be late. (Read all the first chapter here.)
