News, events and discoveries of the Walkley Ways, Walkley Wars history project.
Life in 1953
Walking to school in the freezing ice
Just our plain shoes and our coats as thin as paper.
Itchy shorts made of wool and cotton.
Shovelling snow while walking to the toilet
Creepy crawlies lurking in the shadows
Walking in the cold makes me shiver.
The louder the shout from my dad
Is less for my tum.
