Vicki Thomas (Editor)

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    Mabel Lucie Attwell’s postcards tell the story of Britain’s Home Front in a charming and often moving way, they are at times laugh-out-loud funny and at times very poignant. She reflects in her writing, "During the Second World War, I worked in an empty building by the Thames. It had been used by the Thams Conservancy Board. When the war came, they moved out and I moved in. I staye there for most of the war. I never went down to an air raid shelter. I was too busy trying to make people laugh about wartime bread and sausages, instead of crying about them." Set in the context of her wartime letters and the home front, this book will be loved by Attwell fans old and new.
