... the number of people able to give a first hand
account of day-to-day life in the early part of the last
century naturally diminishes. The small but telling
detail disappears. Ethel May Elvin was born in 1906; she
recalls her father's account of standing sentry at Queen
Victoria's funeral, the privations and small pleasures of
a working-class Edwardian childhood, growing up through
the First World War and surviving the Second. Anyone
intrigued by the small events of history, how the
majority actually lived day to day, will find this a
unique and fascinating book.
