Description
This nostalgic cultural history is packed with hundreds of childhood memories recalling unforgettable summer holidays. Vivid, first-person accounts and anecdotes from the 1930s to the 1970s capture the British summer and its magic. Illustrated with nostalgic black-and-white photographs, rediscover a bygone time of ‘playing out’; battling boredom; making your own fun; buckets and spades; ‘eye spy’ and sing-songs on car journeys; day trips, treats and the great outdoors… all without a whiff of health and safety. Humorous, wistful and fun, anyone who remembers the pre-Digital Age will love the memories sparked by this engagingly written tale of summers past, all kicked off with someone saying, ‘are we nearly there yet?’
