An American in Yorkshire 1945

With grateful thanks to Marilyn who contacted us recently with this lovely letter written to her mother by her father when he was an Amercan serviceman stationed in the UK towards the end of WWII. On furlough in February of 1945 he stays with a family in Eston and visits Saltburn. The letter is full of wonderful observations about the people he meets as well as the places he visits.
We are preparing a small pamphlet which will include contemporary illustrations of the places Phil mentions in his letter but felt that we really wanted to share this lovely piece right now. Simply click on the image to read a transcription of the letter.
