Memories of a
1950s Childhood.
In the last few years, I have recorded my childhood memories of
Trumpington in the 1940s and 1950s. The family moved to Trumpington
in 1946 and we lived in Grantchester Road, with my father working on
the Pemberton estate. I went to school at the Church School and Fawcett
School. My recollections are in a number of parts:
