Mildura Living magazine has run some wonderful profiles over the past few years on people and places in the Sunraysia region. Mildura based writer Lisa Cooper has written a gorgeous piece for the Autumn edition of Mildura Living on Oz and Myrtle's story! If you're in Mildura its pretty easy to pick up a copy - but outside of that contact Mildura Living via their website about picking a copy up before their next issue comes out. Its been a privilege to be able to read and transcribe Oz and Myrtle's letters and just wonderful to see their story being shared further afield.
