A Victorian Love Story.

A small and dusty old leather suitcase resurfaced every few years in Georgina's large London home. Inside was a jumble of old letters covered with writing that, as a child, she couldn't even begin to read.

Thirty years later Georgina has taken the time to transcribe some of the love letters from her great-grandparents, Bob & Jinnie, and publish them on her website, Victorian Love Letters. Fascinating.

Bob & Jinnie

Jane "Jinnie" Loveday

Jinnie and Bob were engaged for over 13 years. Bob was a valet; Jinnie, a housekeeper with the last name of Miss Loveday. Miss Loveday? How wonderful is that? Couldn't make that one up!

Visit Georgina's website here to follow this sweet love story...
