Published by The Kates Hill Press in 1998 as part of their 'Pocketful of Memories' series, 32 pages. A5 size booklet (N6158)

In this booklet the author provides a brief account of her childhood living and growing up in Blackheath in the Rowley Regis area of Sandwell in the West Midlands.

From the rear side cover: This booklet.... brings to life the sights, sounds, and smells of a by­gone age through the words of writers for whom those times were a reality. In this booklet Tossie Patrick describes how she revisited the streets of her childhood just before the bulldozers erased them from the landscape. She was moved to re­cord what were for her happier times; the school, Christmas, hop picking.... Recalling characters from the community, as well as from her own family the Blackheath of the 1930s is brought back to life.

The booklet is in good overall condition. The cover has one or two very minor scuffs, but the staple spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
