12.5.1937, one month before I was born. Very few men, except for those in drag; women in pinnies; numerous kids….…. Do you recognise anyone? First posted in https://bristolfamilyhistoryblog.wordpress.com/2015/06/16 Thanks to Dorothy Acford.
‘Peters, it may be mentioned is, as a Rugby player, English whatever his nationality proper may be.’ Western Mail, 8.9.1906. N.B. This account contains terms that are no longer acceptable, though were in common...
I have been researching the social history of the West Country for 45 years. During this time I have collated information on a wide range of people living and working in the West Country including miners, ethnic minorities, petty criminals, sailors, tommies, benefactors, brassmakers and many more.
The thing that I find amazing is that ordinary people always lived extraordinary lives. I hope you like my blog that brings together my lifetime of research.
