Born in Germany, Margitta Acker came to Australia in June 1962. Five weeks later, she was married at St Peter's Lutheran Church in Reid. For her, it was a wedding among strangers. Her memories of settling in Canberra, exploring her new surroundings, finding work, making friends and raising a family give a fascinating insight into everyday life in the national capital half a century ago, when Lake Burley Griffin was non-existent, mobile phones and credit cards were unheard of, and the suburb of Curtin was out in the paddocks.
