Eveline A Hughes's memoir of growing up in Nuneaton in Warwickshire paints a vivid picture of daily life in the 1920s and 1930s, describing her father's barber shop, her school, Sundays ('Everything stopped') and special occasions such as Christmas and the circus coming to town. Through it all we glimpse the changes happening in the wider world, such as the 'hard times' of the General Strike, but improved living conditions - a bathroom.
