Story of a 1930's wedding in an old box

I thought this was a lovely story about a wedding treasure box found almost 100 years after the event
A happy read ;D

What a lovely story, thanks for sharing Sue.  It's wonderful to read about these wedding items being saved from the skip and preserved.  Sad to think how many old treasures may have been thrown out in house clearances and are now gone forever.

I read this story this morning on the ABC, such a lovely story. Thanks for sharing.

The ABC seem to be having a history story each Sunday recently, very enjoyable reading.  :D

Those tiny silver shoes in one of the pictures - my mum had a couple of those from her wedding cake. Sadly everything was thrown out when she divorced my dad.
