my brother and I taken by my uncle who was a keen amateur photographer
do you like my petticoat?
a lovely old leather bag - what did it contain?
my mother's 21st birthday telegram sent by my father in 1946, four days before they married
lots of sheets of paper carefully folded, some in envelopes
a tiny handwritten card which perhaps accompanied flowers
As I leafed through these papers, some on writing paper, order forms, invoices and scraps of paper, it became obvious to me that they were love letters written by my father. I had mixed feelings about reading them as I felt they were not meant for my eyes so I read only one. I told one of my closest friends about my discovery and she suggested I take them to my mother and read them aloud to her. I am thinking about it, but whatever happens I shall treasure them as a little piece of family history.
My aunt Margaret remembers my father wrote to my mother often in the weeks before their marriage. They were together for over fifty years....
I shall leave you with my favourite ted x
