1950s Letters.

In the 1950s Alaska became the 49th state, Disneyland opened, and 4.3 million babies were born (the "Baby Boom" peaked in 1953). And there were letters! Like these from Sandy to her husband Harry.

Sandy & Harry (1945 & 1953)

In these 48 letters -- the first ever shared by Flea Market Love Letters in 2017 -- we're treated to a split timeline. We first meet Sandy in 1945 when she's a young British War-Bride trying to arrange her passage to the U.S. with her future husband Harry. Then it's 1953 and we're back in England with Sandy and her two daughters with Harry. Letters dated February 1945 to June 1953.
