Description:
Ysenda Maxtone Graham's book is about summer holidays of the mid-20th century and how they were spent. Through this prism, she paints a revealing portrait of how we were, how families functioned, what houses and gardens and streets were like, what journeys were like, and what people did all day in their free time. She explores expectations, hopes, fears and habits, the rules or lack of rules under which they lived, their happiness and sadness, their sense of being treasured or neglected - all within living memory, from pre-war summers to the late 1970s.
