Summary This is the story of a bygone era, describing the childhood of a boy who grew up in south-east London in the 1930s. Adrian Bristow came not from a working- or upper class background, but from that great unsung mass-the lower middle-class. Adrian Bristow describes what it was like to grow up in the 1930s in an ordinary suburban family. He enjoyed a childhood radically different from that experienced by children today: so much that he took for granted has disappeared completely or changed utterly. What Adrian took for granted becomes, on reflection, quite extraordinary and it is the essence of this difference that he has recaptured in this book. Illustrated with a wide range of family photographs and images of south-east London, this will be a highly enjoyable read for anyone who delights in memoirs of childhoods past.
