==================================================================

Dear Ancestor,-
Your tombstone stands amongst the rest, neglected and alone
The names and dates are chiselled out on polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care, it is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist, you died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you, in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own

Dear Ancestor, 
The place you filled one hundred years ago
Spreads out amongst the ones you left who would have loved you so,
I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you.

A CHILD OF THE 1920's
AS SEEN FROM THE 1990's
by
John Robert Laws 1921-2008

HOME 2


The kitchen was decorated in the deco of the period. The matchboarding of the lower part of the walls was painted a light brown like the dresser, and the upper walls were done in a strong cream gloss. I'm ptretty sure there were lace curtains the same as the rest of the house. Just a touch of an earlier period was the fringe to the mantle piece where the tea caddy (an ornamental tin), the candlesticks and the spill jar stood. 

The fire guard had a nice brass rim at the top, well polished by the constant touching of hands and glistened from the fire and the gaslight. Behind it was the black kitchen range, a solid fuel stove with two ovens and a back boiler for hot water. Much of the cooking was done on it in the winter using heavy old iron cooking pots which must have been heirlooms. 

It the only heating in the house till late afternoon unless the bedroom gas fires were used to dress by. The kitchen stove was lit at six in the morning  normally by Lottie, though I remember my dad doing it on one occasion  with me looking on. Everyone else must have been out of action I reckon.

The scullery next to the kitchen saved the yellowish shallow sink and the black iron gas cooker with its brass taps from spoiling the kitchen. It was definately a workplace. the built-in copper had a fire below it to boil the wash. the mangle was enormous with big wooden rollers to get the water out  before and after rinsing. the corrugated washboard had not yet been passed on to the skiffle group. 

Clothing must have been tough to withstand the battering. It all had to be ironed of course which was done on the kitchen table on the ironing cloth conveniently kept in its end drawer. Two heavy flat-irons were used one in use while the other was reheated on the gas cooker. No thermostats on these, a drop of spit on the finger applied to the hot iron would tell whether the sizzle was about right.

The one convenience, so to speak, about the scullery was the downstairs loo was entered from it. At that time they were normally out in the garden waiting for the first hard frost to put them out of action. Indeed so were most of those of the houses built in the later building boom of the early thirties.

There was one other work area, the coal cellar, prohibited to the infant population. This too was better than the thirties houses which had coal bunkers in the garden from which the fuel must be fetched come rain snow or shine. The descent to the  cellar through a door in the hall passage was steep to go down and perhaps steeper to climb up laden with a bucket of coal, so some may dispute my feeling that it was better than going out in the rain.

The coal came into the cellar through the coal hole in the top front step which was recessed into the house to give a small porch with the iron cover of the coal hole in the centre. Four of five sandstone steps led up from street level and the coalman would carry his enormous sack up  and upend it over the hole. Needless to say, this spouiled the pristine cleanliness of the whitened step and was not a popular event. 

Personally I liked to see the patient carthorse observing the proceedings while digging into his nosebag and enjoying the enforced rest. Having delivered his orders, the coalman would patrol the streets calling out 'Coal' at intervals in the hope of casual customers. Much the same perhaps  as the 'butanero' delivering gas in today's Spain, though he needs no call, the clatter of his lorry enough to rouse the customers.

As well as the coal store there was plenty of space in the cellar with a sort of second room into which a feeble light filtered bt a small window below the 'front room' bay. I remember it as a junk store but maybe it was just things one couldn't throw away. Perhaps the most valuable thing in the cellar was the cold tap which didn't freeze even in the coldest snap when everybodies pipes were frozen and standpipes had to be put up in the streets.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Lord, help me dig into the past
and sift the sands of time
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine

Lord, help me trace the ancient roads,
On which my father's trod
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.

Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript,
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt

Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul, when I can't find
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine

A CHILD OF THE 1920's


AS SEEN FROM THE 1990's
by
John Robert Laws 1921-2008

Part 1

IN THE BEGINNING

The war had been over three years, the Kaiser's War that is. It was late afternoon on Christmas Eve and the sun had gone down for the day, the gaslight on and the fires lit, but of course I don't remember as I was the early Christmas present for my Mum.

When memory reaches back to it's furthest it is summer, there is a lot of summer in the early years, or so it seems. There are laburnums in flower in the garden and wooden toys with nodding heads, a swan, and a rhino to be pulled along on wheels and always the sound of trains with smoke and steam.

Every morning just after ten there was the Flying Scotsman to watch go by and then there was shunting and banging all day and night that one slept soundly through, just as one now sleeps through the noise of the television. The smoke and soot annoyed my mum, but to an infant, it was just an interesting smell which came and went, perhaps a little stronger when one climbed the railway fence to get a better view. A few missing palings made this easy even for the smallest child.

Over the fence was a narrow strip of unkempt grass often burnt in summer when a spark from a passing locomotive set it alight. at other times an unofficial path for railwaymen, children, and burglars. The tracks lay about fifteen feet down from the grass, the land held up by a hefty retaining wall. Lots of tracks, maybe a dozen, with another track on a long bridge crossing them at an acute angle and takings trains from one side to the other without touching the fast line.

The land rose on the other side of the tracks, a steep tall grassy bank with a proper footpath along the top beyond the fence and even seats along the top. In the afternoon sunshine, these would be occupied by mums and nannies with prams while the trains amused the vociferous offspring. It was not until later that I explored these distant parts, a sprawl of suburbia from the late nineteenth century broken here and there by parks and sports grounds.

HOME



The land rose on the other side of the tracks, a steep tall grassy bank with a proper footpath along the top beyond the fence and even seats along the top. In the afternoon sunshine, these would be occupied by mums and nannies with prams while the trains amused the vociferous offspring. It was not until later that I explored these distant parts, a sprawl of suburbia from the late nineteenth century broken here and there by parks and sports grounds.

We looked out that way one sunlit evening and saw the majestic airship the R101 floating gently south towards London, France and their appointment in Samarkand.

Our garden was not very large, a rectangle with a concrete path around the patch of grass to leave a border for plants and little trees. A little extra bit was squeezed in at the side of the back of the house before the narrow sideway, out to the front. Inside the rectangle of the path, the grass had half a dozen little apple trees around the edge. The plants elude my memory, only the laburnums stand out clearly, always in flower with a prickly rose bush under one of them.

One went into the garden at the side of the back door from the scullery down a couple of sandstone steps. Only in very warm weather was the double back door of the bay window in the kitchen opened for regular use. It opened onto a paved patch across the garden which caught the afternoon sun. For some time I had a white albino rabbit in a hutch in the garden. It had a wire netting run from which it would burrow out if not carefully supervised.

Our house was a semi, built of London stocks in the late 1800's, one of the better houses almost at the top of the hill. We lived there till I was ten, so being an inquisitive child, I learned to know the area better than the palm of my hand.

As an infant the day was spent in the kitchen, a pleasant enough room lit by a bay window with a half glazed double door to the garden. It was heated by a black-leaded built-in kitchen range with an oven to the side and a back boiler to heat the water. This had to be lit every morning if the weather was cold and if it were lit it would be used for some cooking. the kitchen was lit at night by a single central gaslight, a soft sympathetic light without the brilliance of the electricity which came later. candlesticks were on the mantlepiece for bedtime. Mine was enamel but my mother had a more elegant one, once silver plated but already polished down to the brass, I still have it.

The kitchen furnishings were plain and useful. A large deal table with an end drawer and covered with a tablecloth. one leg very tatty from being used as a scratching post by the cat. Bentwood chairs, comfortable enough but a little creaky, one an elbow chair the rest plain but with the usual pressed pattern on the seat. A built-in brown painted dresser with drawers and cupboards below and a slightly mixed collection of plates on edge on the shelves with the cups hanging from hooks on the front. Meals were usually taken in the kitchen except at weekends when lunch (called dinner) and tea were taken in the dining room. fortunately, the kitchen was a good sized room and a child could run about and play on the floor with little impediment.

The cat which had used the table leg as a scratching post was known by the unlikely name of Ma. It appears that I christened it with the only word in my vocabulary at a very early age. It was an undistinguished tabby which would catch the occasional unwary mouse but would spend more time snoozing in front of the fire. It seemed that every house had mice at that time. Food was more accessible before fridges and freezers.

Lord, help me dig into the past
and sift the sands of time
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine

Lord, help me trace the ancient roads,
On which my father's trod
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.

Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript,
Thats safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt

Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul, when I can't find
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine
