Season 4: Episode 6: Myerstown Pennsylvania; March 16-31, 1955

In this season of Letters from the Past, we’re returning to the 20th century.  Specifically, Myerstown, PA a small town about 80 miles northwest of Philadelphia.  Instead of using letters as the primary source for these episodes, I’m using the journal of one woman who’s name is never directly given.  Her husband’s name is John and her son’s name is Ronnie.  The entries are short and to the point but give a glimpse into living in rural America in 1955.
