“Memories of Yesteryear” is written as a personal look back into history of rural America during the period between the two great wars, World War I and World War 11. Many aspects of this period of rural living, so different then from now, are covered in this book.
It deals with such common-place things as the old T-models cars, the telephones, the country church, and the ever-present outhouse.
All of these and many others rural living experiences of that era are covered in detail in this interesting book.
