English country life in the 1920's and 1930's, told by the people themselves. Fifty-three speakers tell of their childhood, schooldays, work, pastimes and pleasures - a baronet, gentleman farmer's son, gentleman's daughter, head gardener's daughter, wheelwright, hunt servant, pigman, carter's son, thatcher's son, ratcatcher's daughter, woodman's daughter... Life in the village of Warfield between the two world wars had hardly altered since the middle of the nineteenth century. Horses still worked the land, most traffic on the roads was horse drawn, most people drew their water from wells, most households were self-supporting in meat and vegetables and oil lamps and candles were used for lighting. New. Signed by Author.
