The story of life in a dustman's family 30 years ago. Mr and Mrs Ruggles had four boys and three girls, who all had different ways of enjoying themselves, almost none of which needed any money, which was just as well because their mother had to take in washing to help pay the bills.

About the Author:

Eve Garnett was born in 1900 in Worcestershire, and studied art at Chelsea Polytechnic and the Royal Academy School of Art. Whilst a student, she sketched the people of the East End slums and was haunted by the poverty she had witnessed, resolving to do something to bring the plight of the working-class family to people's attention. The Family from One End Street was originally published by Frederick Muller in 1937, followed by The Further Adventures of the Family from One End Street in 1956, and Holiday at Dew Drop Inn in 1962. She died in 1991.
