Notes

General Note
"As told to Leslie Le Mon."
Description
"In 1985, a college student interviewed her grandmother Leona about life in Orange, Massachusetts during the 1920's and 1930's. Leona's accounts of school, work, family, and play in this quintessential New England mill town are entertaining tales from a vanished past. And Leona's wariness about the future--in regard to crime, the media, education, and the social fabric of the country--proves to be prescient. Of interest to students of American history, New England history, or simply human history. Enjoy a slice of life in Orange in the early 1900's, with its mills, trains, piazzas, Atwater Kent radios, sad irons, scrub boards, travis sleds, and Studebaker automobiles."--Page [4] of cover.
