Details Make the Story


Alice and Edwin participated in my most recent Life Stories class.

Alice had a career as a beautician. In her beauty shop, she had a Coke machine; a soda cost 10 cents. As she planned her wedding in 1967, she saved the dimes from the machine to buy her $210 wedding dress.

Edwin is a lifetime farmer. For a few months before he married in 1958, he also worked in a factory to help pay for his wedding. He doesn’t remember how much the wedding cost, but he earned 90 cents an hour for his factory work.
