Daisy Noakes tells her story from the age of fourteen, when she went into service. She gives us an insight into the life of a woman born and brought up in Brighton during the years 1910-1934. Daisy documents with humour her inevitable trials and tribulations in the often physically demanding world that she inhabited during her working life.
The autobiography covers her childhood as one of a family of ten, living in Prince’s Road and Vere Road, and her working days in service in different parts of the town. This remarkable personal history is a special insight into Daisy’s world and a shining example of true grit and fortitude in hard times.
This book is the companion piece to Daisy Noakes’ Faded Rainbow.
