All ordinary people have family stories that should be told before they are lost. This one explores family background, survival through difficulties, and recalls a childhood in the Wolverhampton of the 1950s, journeying to North Wales and Malvern. Primary School days of the time are shared with fellow class-mates who had lived through the same experiences.

Wolverhampton born and bred, Anthony Perry has previously shared the interest he and his wife Joyce have in local history through the writing and publishing of several books. Now he shares his childhood memories of an era which many people who lived through it felt was more stable, community spirited, easier to understand and, despite adversity more hopeful.

Perhaps this will encourage readers to begin their own family research and record it for future generations.
