Recollected observations of England between World War I and II
In this series of pen?portraits of England, commissioned by the Daily Mail in the 1930s, the pattern and color of the "great fabric of English life" from Cumberland to Cornwall is vividly conjured. The heartwarming, humorous, and often irreverent observations of sleepy villages, pastoral scenes, and busy industries provide a delightful insight into life between the wars.
