"A nostalgic look at events as they occurred in Oakville, Ontario around the turn of the century. (D)eals with the author's life as a very, very young boy. The book tells of a return to King's Castle, the author's birthplace - a many gabled, four storied house. It describes various and amusing happenings that took place in the often carefree years preceeding the First World War Armistice. Childhood 'goings on' were just as mischievious in those days as now - there were not the the distractions of to-day. Trips to ice cream parlors, toy shops, butcher shops, the Church and barn are all described in amusing fashion. There is even a Castle ghost. (G)ently reminds the reader of times and places when life was lived at a more leisurely and happier pace." Interior - previous owner's label on half title page, progressively softer crease on pages up to approx. page 20, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - several creases down covers, tiny dent on front cover, very light browning on spine and at edges of covers, some small faint water marks on top of text block.
