A Ragged Schooling : Growing Up in the Classic Slum Paperback
With great humour and vitality, Robert Roberts evokes his Edwardian childhood in the vivid portrait of a vanished community.
Breathing the smoke from the factory chimneys, the children of Salford struggled daily to survive the grinding poverty that surrounded them.
Sharing lively games along the railways lines and canal banks, their lives were rich in experience and comradeship.
