Walter Bernardini began life in a typical Glasgow tenement, in Shettleston, moving to Tollcross in the years before the Second World War. Life was no bed of roses. The Bernardinis stayed in a classic room-and-kitchen, where young Walter slept in a bed recess in the front room. In this compelling book, the author reminisces fondly about life up a close, wedding scrambles, nights at the pictures, winchin' in the close, trips with the Scouts, wartime evacuation and much more. It is a scintillating slice of social history, full of warmth and humour. These were truly his 'dear old Glasgow years'.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this wonderfully warm and funny book with such sharp memories of the Author's childhood
