When I Were a Lass…
Snapshots of a time that Political Correctness forgot
When I Were A Lass… looks back through rose-tinted NHS spectacles (held together with an old plaster) to a time when the world was a simpler place. A girl’s view of the 1930s, 40s and 50s is revealed through a series of vintage photos. From a time when radio and gramophones were the only distraction and toys were few and far between, a doll was a thing to be treasured and a trip to the seaside was a grand adventure. The book takes a nostalgic and offbeat look at the photos of a distant childhood.
