A Warwickshire Childhood : No Cakes for Tea
This collection of memories follows a Warwickshire girl as she grows up during an era of huge transformation in Britain. Written to reflect her childhood impression of the world around her, this memoir reminds readers of the realities of everyday life in a bygone era. Illustrated with charming family photographs, this is a memoir which creates a vivid picture of day-to-day life in Nuneaton in the 1920s and '30s, including time spent in school, family holidays and the changes in the town itself. It also provides a youthful insight into the turbulent decades between the two world wars. This delightful book will evoke nostalgic memories in those who recall growing up in this era, and for children of the present day it provides a unique recollection of growing up in a different age.
