Details

What was it like to grow up in a rural suburb 60 years ago? This book recalls the simple pleasures of childhood games and everyday life in the days before TV and computer games. Pocket money was earned by selling home-grown vegetables, collecting firewood and retrieving lost golf balls. Mothers were occupied with housework without the aid of modern appliances. Salesmen called offering clothing, medicines and cash loans. The author captures the joys and hardships of life in the 1940s and 50s in an affectionate memoir enlivened with amusing anecdotes and memorable portraits of local characters. Cartoon illustrations by Peter Davis. Soft cover, B5, vi + 58 pages, illustrations, index.
