Description

The story of a working girl, Mary, and her life in Stratford-upon Avon between the wars. We follow her fortunes and misfortunes as she grows up on the first corporation estate in a town better known for its literary heritage than its council houses or factories. We share her laughter as well as disillusionment and gain a unique glimpse into the world of the factory floor in the 1930's and 1940's. We follow her friendships and her struggle to make a living, when she found herself, in the 1930's, unemployed and with a baby on the way.show more
