Aniseed Balls, Billy Carts and Clothes Lines by Roly Chapman

Roly Chapman was born in Auchenflower, Brisbane in 1926. His reminiscences of growing up in the 1930’s will bring a smile to many readers both young and old.

With chapters covering The Flicks, Cracker Night, The Ekka, Hawking & Spitting, Made in Japan, The Rat Gang, Jargon, and Dunnies & Dunny men, these entertaining topics are also of historical interest, documenting aspects of everyday life in the 1930’s that today have been all but forgotten and are quite foreign to children of the 21st century.

His humerous, warm and easy to read approach makes this book a real treat whether you are a contemporary with shared memories or the child of a different generation.
