Basil, remembered as the town centre
grocer who specialised in coffee, kept notes on his experiences
throughout his life and these have been put into narrative
form by his daughter.
A boy in a thriving county town observes
much of the activity around him and Basil, with many tradespeople
relations in the area, remembers the cattle market, mishaps,
the fire brigade, entertainment, celebrations, schooldays,
church-goers, and leaving home to go to war. What it was really
like in the early years of the 20th century.
