Notes:
Before the Second World War, Lillian Beckwith's father ran a small grocer's shop in a Cheshire town. It was typical of so many corner shops - the shops that are now more and more becoming just a memory, overwhelmed by the march of the supermarket. The corner shop where customers were known, often friends, not just faces at a checkout point, where shopping was gossipy, unhurried. A shop full of remembered smells of childhood: soft soap, aniseed balls, bacon and tea. A shop that is brought to life by the acute, affectionate memories of the little girl who grew up in it.
Lillian Beckwith's childhood is the subject of this book. She takes us back to the years before the Second World War, to the Great Depression and her father's grocer's shop in a Cheshire town. All are humourously described in this affectionate memoir.
