9780091077907: About My Father's Business

Novelist Lillian Beckwith's childhood is the subject of this charming account. She takes us back to the years before the Second World War, to the Great Depression and her father's grocer's shop in a Cheshire town. She tells of the smells of hand-made sausages and cheese. The number of goods needing to be weighed out: sugar, butter, cocoa, flour, soap flakes and candles. The gossipy customers and local characters visiting their family corner shop. The dates in the calendar: starting school, Christmas, the May Day procession and visits to the fair. All are humorously described in this affectionate memoir.
