REVIEW Lost Voices of the Edwardians 1901 1910 in Their Own Words

Combining oral history rare images and rediscovered film stills from the turn of the century this work gives voice to the forgotten figures who peopled the cities factories and coasts. This is my favorite kind of history book which is compiled using oral memoirs because who can describe it better than someone who actually was there This is a real must read for anyone who enjoys reading non fiction history
