Yesterday's Country Village Memories of Village Life from 1900-1960 by Henry Buckton

Yesterday's Country Village Memories of Village Life from 1900-1960


Yesterday's Country Village Memories of Village Life from 1900-1960 by Henry Buckton

This is a unique chance to recall the community spirit and village life of days gone by, as villages around Britain are revisited through first-hand memories and historical research. A fascinating collection of photographs brings to us the places and faces of country village life past. Both pictures and words evoke the memories of often harsh realities, but always great humour and enduring spirit. It seamlessly combines painstaking research with original voices of the time to take a nostalgic look at both the hardships and the joys of village life in the first half of the 20th century.
