This collection of short stories traverses times in the distant past all the way up to more recent moments in the 20th century. These vignettes provide glimpses of lives very different to our own, from the experience of war and poverty to social attitudes which might appear alien to us today. To have lived through some of these times has been a privilege, and the author looks back on them with a sense of nostalgia. The memories of the past remain, and with the aid of stories they can be passed on to future generations. These stories can evoke both laughter and tears, plumbing the vast depths of human emotion to bring history to life in a vivid and compelling set of narratives.

Brian Greenaway was born in the early 30s and Gt Britain was starting to come out of a worldwide recession. By the time he reached four, Britain was again at war with Germany. Like so many other children he was evacuated to the country. Even at the age, he found the country quite exciting, taken in the elderly couple whose children had long left home, he settled in quite well. Brian was enrolled in the village school despite the fact he was still only four, a move that did him no harm.
