Description

These personal memories give a unique and fascinating insight into the lives of the people who lived in and around the Gloucestershire market town neighbours of Fairford and Lechlade. This volume of reminiscences documents the individuality of the people and paints a vibrant picture of the lives lead, daily work and social experiences enjoyed, both public and private, in their own words. Accompanied by illustrations, many from private collections and many that will not previously have been seen, Fairford and Lechlade Voices contains transcriptions of memories collected from a wide selection of local people. 'There was a trememdous secrecy about the entries, every shop and organisation decorated a float, originally horse-drawn farm carts and wagons and then later cars and motorcycles were allowed to enter as decorated vehicles.' Documenting the social and historical changes that have taken place here and providing a unique view from the people whose lives were involved in these changes, Fairford and Lechlade Voices is a valuable source of information for the historian, but will also delight those who want to know more about the daily life of local people.show more
