Home Life in the 1930s and 40s
In Home Life in the 1930s and 40s, Joyce Williams tells us what it was like to grow up on a busy farm in Wales in the years before and during World War II. In the Grandma Remembers series, we meet real grandmothers who were children in post-1930s Britain. They tell us about their childhood in words and pictures, including some photographs from their family albums to help tell their stories.
