Life in a country town during the 1930s and 1940s
by Betty Clark
Wandering through summer meadows to swim in the river, mending boots with a hobbin iron, watching the crockery salesman juggle with dinner plates at the weekly market; then later, gas masks and air raid sirens, queues to buy rationed groceries, training to be a fire watcher: Betty Clark’s memories of life in Stamford before and during the Second World War vividly evoke so recently past yet having an atmosphere of its own that will be instantly recognised by those who lived through those years. Her amusing anecdotes of every day life, mingled with memories of the hardship and suffering endured by so many, allow us to share a personal recollection of a time that is now part of our history.
