The Paterson Family: Letters from a Courtship, 1928

For a long time George has kept letters his father sent to his mother six months
before they were married in 1929. Along with these 39 letters, written June to
December 1928, George has a rich archive of photographs. Some of the text of  
the book and some of the pictures are included here.
