This book is brilliant. Pamela Brooks has collated information from a huge range of material & produced a really interesting book giving background on all the streets, yards etc in the city. We found it invaluable when producing this site & would recommend it to anyone who is involved in a similar project.
In this book Carole & Michael Blackwell have collated Ethel's "...memories of a Norwich Childhood 1914 - 1934." As the youngest of 17 children growing up in a poor Norwich neighbourhood, Ethel takes the reader into a world few of us remember. It is beautifully written and provides an excellent read.
