I purchased this for a friend who enjoys books of this nature, but was surprised how easy it was for me to find and purchase but then I did have my secret advisor (amazon) to guide me all the way. Good place to find what you want and make someone other than yourself's day. Once gain thanks AMAZON and the book supplier.
I really enjoyed this book especially as it was written by my old headmistress Mrs Coates who I knew extremely well up to her death.
Pure serendipity brought me to this gem of a book. It is from the Isis Reminiscence series and has a plain, unembellished writing style which gets straight to the point conjuring up images of social solidarity and interdependence in the first half of 20th century UK.
