Me Old Mam and the Sea by George Sheader:
“ME OLD MAM AND THE SEA is not just a book; it is a document both historical and hysterical on Scarborough’s Bottom End, the fishing quarter; it is an heirloom to be cherished and passed down the generations; it is a memory for the old of how life was, and a guide to the young on how it should be; it is a big book, illustrated with many photos, that sits comfortably both in the library and in the bathroom. ME OLD MAM AND THE SEA makes the perfect gift for the special occasion, and at a mere 13 pounds, not too cheap for those you love, and yet, not too expensive for those you’d rather avoid.”
The hero of this book Doreen sadly passed away at the end of September at the grand old age of 100. RIP Doreen.
Phil Cook: A great present for Christmas for anyone, but especially for those with a love of Scarborough’s Old Town! Many tales, mainly of life growing up in the Old Town in the 50’s and 60’s! Social history with wonderful humour at its best throughout!
Vicky Eves: I have been fortunate to get a copy of George’s book. I am reading it a bit at a time otherwise I would read it all in one go. Even the introductory pages are riveting, and what characters George has got off to a T. Very well worth waiting for. Thanks George.
