ISIS Large Print Books, 2003 - Liverpool (England) - 136 pages
A memoir that recaptures ordinary family life in 1930s Britain. Daughter of a ship steward and a housewife, Joan Park gives a delightful glimpse of her childhood from 1927 to 1941, when she and her family lived at 86 Smith Street in Liverpool. From the descriptions of her granddad's shoe repair shop to the stories her mother used to tell, Joan Park recounts her personal memories of the time of the Great Depression with a child's innocent eye. This is life as she encountered it in those days - family, friends, school and the little incidents - all of which had a big part to play in the day-to-day life of a little girl growing up in Liverpool.
