Wednesday, May 20, 1936

My 40th Anniversary*
plesant but cold-
Had a fire all day.
Done the ironing and pressed Mothers wool dress and mended Harry's work pants-
Aunty went over to the Brick House this afternoon-
Florence and Anna brought her home-
She was cross as a bear this forenoon-
Mother good all day-

40th Anniversaries are called Ruby Anniversaries*

*This indeed would have been Irene & Willet's 40th anniversary. They were married in 1896. Irene gave birth to Iliff Willard Dolton in 1897. Willet Dolton died in 1935.(image from Party Delights UK)

Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
