Cider With Rosie

You are probably wondering what this is doing here…

“a wonderfully vivid memoir of childhood in a remote Cotswold village, a village before electricity or cars, a timeless place on the verge of change.”

Published in 1959, it depicts life in the period just after the first world war.   Whilst this is now “beyond living memory”, it is a useful reminder of just what has changed in 100 years, and what a low-energy future could look like.
