    Phyl Surman grew up in Cowley in east Oxford during the 1920s. She recalls the happy and secure childhood she enjoyed there in this engaging memoir. Illustrated with contemporary photographs, it describes the minutiae of everyday working-class life, schooldays and bath nights, shopping and street games, and events such as the General Strike and the arrival of the Welsh miners who had walked to Cowley in search of work at the new Morris motor works.
