Not long now!

It's less than a month to publication day for The Children History Forgot! Over the next few weeks I'll be discussing the many different jobs done by children in Georgian and Victorian times. Children worked in a huge variety of industries, not just in cotton factories or down coal mines.

Just off to Morocco with the family, or rather some of them, Emily , Abigail and my wife, Marilyn.
Sam is off to China, doing some TEFL. Alice is working at a local Holiday Inn for the Summer holidays before she goes back to Newport, University of Wales in September.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, Tony. I hope you have a wonderful time on holiday with your family. You must be very pleased that your children have found some jobs in these difficult times.
