All of the letters in this collection are addressed to Irma Breadner, employee of Don Stanton's General Store of Westlock, Alberta, from her friends and family. The letters span the years 1941 through 1948, but the bulk were sent in the years 1944 and 1945. Together the letters offer an intimate view of Wartime as it was experienced by Central Albertans. Breadner's correspondents include servicemen and women working overseas, her sister, Jean, building airplanes in Ontario, and many Albertan women getting their educations or helping their families with the harvest against the backdrop of the final years of the Second World War. The collection also includes cards, postcards, pay stubs and a church program.
