I live here in the United States because my grandmother came here on vacation! She had intended to stay for one week, but there was a break-out of diphtheria and all the bridges to Canada were closed for a long time. Grandmother got a job as a nanny and ended up meeting Grandpa. She always said that her life was an extended vacation!
(This must have been so frightening at first, imagine how she must have felt, alone in a strange land, unemployed, homeless, more than likely afraid of getting sick too. But it turned out for the best. She found her love and began life anew from an incredibly awkward situation!)
The photos and stories in Brown Bag Letter are synchronized. To preserve personal history, my hope is that the anonymous photo and story from a different family will keep the stories of our past vibrant and not these folks to fade away.
