Stories from a Small Town

Wonderful stories of life told to the author by 25 elders of small Victorian town on Ireland's East Coast:  among them, a parlour-maid, plumber, fireman; carpenter, garage owner, and judge who started life in his grandfather's grocery shop; a farmer who delivered milk (with a horse that knew where the customers lived); and a World War Two veteran shot down in flames over Germany lives to tell the tale.
