Not all Slagbanks and Buttercups, by Charlie Framp
Booklet published by Richard Kay in 2002, 68 pages. Paperback (N4958).
Through Charlie Framp's remarkable memory he conveys a very readable picture of life for a boy growing up in Ashby, near Scunthorpe at the end of the 1920s and early 30s. The book thus offers a short but fascinating insight into the social history of this part of the country in the period before the Second World War....
From the rear side cover: This book does not set out to be an autobiography, or at least not a comprehensive one, but rather a number of vignettes of life for a boy at the end of the 1920's and the early years of the 1930's. Charlie's memory is good and a picture emerges which will be familiar to all of a similar age who grew up in a large village or small town at the time of the Great Depression.
Condition of the book is generally good. The cover has one or two very minor scuffs, but the spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a small price sticker on the rear side cover
