I am an Edwardian, begins this very interesting overview of the early decades of the 20th Century. It is an account of “the impact of some of the great events of my early years – how they impinged on us, what people said and did. . . how they affected their lives, their manners and mores for good or evil”. The author remembers The Great War, the Easter Rising, the Black-and-Tans Terror, the Civil War, and much more.
