This short book focuses on an overview of country life during the 1800s to 1930s, and on the everyday crafts used during that time period. The book contains many detailed illustrations and photographs of common tools and vessels used during the era. Engaging and informative, this is a lovely look back at a now vanished time. I would recommended it to those interested in Irish folk history.
