Growing Up in Cambridge free pdf This fascinating story of life in Cambridge is written from the idiosyncratic perspective of an author who not only grew up in the city during the 1950s and 1960s, but who also attended its prestigious university. Alec Forshaw has remained connected to Cambridge ever since. Brought up on the north side of town, his reminiscences detail not only domestic life with his parents and his brother, but also the development of Cambridge in post-war Britain. Compelling memories of the city and university, his voyage through the Cambridgeshire education system, the 'Big Freeze' of 1963, family holidays and excursions into nearby Fenland are just a few examples of how the author vividly depicts the world in which he grew up. Enhanced by a selection of rare photographs, Alec Forshaw's recollections of childhood, student days and family life during this period of great change provide a charming tale that will delight anyone with an interest in the local area or this period of history.
