Description
 
The damask tablecloth, butter dish, utility jug, pyrex dish and salad servers were given to Arthur and Enid Sturgeon when they married in Hackbridge in 1948. Enid wore a borrowed wedding dress because she couldn't afford the clothing coupons. Arthur made the bookshelves on which the presents stand from used bakers trays, to furnish their first home.
