INTRODUCTION

As a child in the school classroom, I loved Friday afternoons – singing and storytelling sessions were my most enjoyable school hours. These stories I have told to many, to be often told by them that I should write a book:

“It’s a way of life now gone.”

“Get it down on paper.”

So, with my pen in hand, Dear Reader, I take you back to my childhood – the 1920’s – and share with you my little band of friends and acquaintances that I have portrayed now in this book. My stories of scenes, incidents and impressions of an age that’s gone, never to return.

So walk with me through our village, down memory lane........
