Cup of Tea Tales

Cup of Tea Tales

By David M Cameron
A collection of tales and anecdotes about growing up in the north of England during the 1950s and 60s that tell of a time of change. The warmth and joy of suburban family life, sibling rivalry and schooling demonstrate the universal challenges of childhood told in a humorous and compelling read. The arrival of youth culture, technology, social challenges and growing independence impacted on families and society, and many experiences have disappeared and been replaced, but much remains the same.
