An Exeter Boyhood
By Frank Retter

AN EXETER BOYHOOD
Frank Retter

Many people look back on their childhood and refer to the 'Good Old Days'. Frank Retter remembers those days well and tells his story in a vivid and entertaining way. This book explores the days when Hele's School was opposite Bury Meadow, Exeter's golf course was high above Pennsylvania, electric trams were a revolutionary form of transport and the cattle market was held in Bonhay Road. Originally published in 1984, this new, revised edition will stir memories for the people who can remember the days for themselves, and record for all time how Exeter was at the beginning of the twentieth century for the ordinary people.
