Book - Misal Diario Para America, circa 1958-1965 Document Reg. No: SH 970442

Mass Book written in Spanish, used in Argentina, circa 1958 - 1965, by Martha Pregal. It was one of the few items Martha brought with her when she migrated from Argentina to Australia in 1965. Martha, her husband and two children came to Australia because they saw it as holding more opportunity, and Martha's Calabrian husband had family members here already. Although Martha had graduated as a teacher in 1957 in Argentina, upon her arrival in Melbourne she worked at the Gloweave factory.
