The Brief Presence of an Absent Granny

£7.68 £4.10

132 page full colour hand-painted illustrations throughout. This book is a charming portrail of ordinary life from the early 20’s to modern times. “Although a originally intended for three Grandsons, I hope many others can enjoy and relate to the reminiscences of a childhood and the simplicity of a Yorkshire village life in the 1920’s and 30’s” Set against a background of change before, during and after World War II, this book chronicles the author’s life and illustrations from early childhood to the present day. Life was so much different in those days – would you let your daughter hitch-hike on lorries, climb out of the window of a moving train, or climb a flagpole on the Nurse’s home roof? Only if you didn’t know about it!
