About this product
- DescriptionStarting from the early 1930s, this book features cuttings that are a verbatim record of life in a busy market town and on the Wolds farms it served, including some on fishing disputes between onshore fishermen from rival East Coast towns, where the Wolds meet the sea with precipitous cliffs.
- Author BiographyFlorence Hopper, the author of the articles collected here was a freelance journalist, broadcaster and artist. She began her career in the early 1930s contributing to the Diary of a Yorkshireman in The Yorkshire Evening Post and Humberside Echoes in The Hull Daily Mail, seldom writing under her own name. Towards the end of her life she also wrote for the Driffield Times under the name of 'Aunt Emmy,' until her death. From the beginning she pasted her newspaper cuttings in a large scrapbook. They are a varied and wonderfully evocative record of daily life in and around the market town of Driffield in the Yorkshire Wolds during the 1930s. It was found, by her niece, in the back of a cupboard after Florence died. She has re-arranged the newspaper cuttings in chronological Sections according to subject to aid readers, whilst preserving their originality.
