Stamford Memories - Life in a Country Town during the 1930s and 1940s, by Betty Clark
Booklet published by Lincolnshire Books, 32 pages. Square booklet - c.20cm by 22cm (N5474)
From the rear side cover: Wandering through summer meadows to swim in the river, mending boots with a hobbin iron, watching the crockery salesman juggle with dinner plates at the weekly market; then later, gas masks and air-raid sirens, queues to buy rationed groceries, training to be a fire watcher: Betty Clark's memories of life in Stamford before and during the second world war vividly evoke a time so recently past yet having an atmosphere of its own that will be instantly recognised by those who lived through those years...
Her amusing anecdotes of everyday life, mingled with memories of the hardship and suffering by so many, allow us to share a personal recollection of a time that is now part of our history.
Condition of the booklet is generally excellent. The covers are clean and bright, the staple spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is an old price printed on the rear side cover, as well as a small price sticker.
