Description

Colin Miller was born in 1940 in Rollesby, a village near Great Yarmouth. In Rollesby, as in so many other rural communities at this time, drinking water was drawn from a well, the lavatory was a bucket in an outside privy, transport was a bicycle or a bus, and entertainment was provided by the radio, whist drives at the village hall or a rare visit to the cinema. As the 1940s and 50s progressed, this way of life changed dramatically--some would say disappeared. Colin Miller chronicles these developments through the eyes of a Norfolk schoolboy and teenager.show more

Review quote

"My childhood, especially during and soon after the war, was a delightful experience that I look back on with great affection and all of my family, not just my parents, made this possible."show more
