Roses in December: Memories of Glossopdale and Longdendale

£8.99

Product description

"Many years ago when I was a student researching family life of the late Victorian-Edwardian period, I became very interested to know just how 'ordinary' people fared. This interest never left me and I have amassed a wonderful collection of stories throughout my life.

Interestingly, most of them would recall in detail the food that their family ate when they were young. I found rich memories of times long gone by and a clue to how they had survived life with an unbreakable spirit; how they had fought against the little that life had allotted their families, without Social Security and a National Health Service to cushion them.

Some of them would write their memories down for me - and this book, with many illustrations I have collected along the way, is the result."
