"For forty miles around every house was open to Charles Wylly. On Sapelo lived his grandfather, uncles, and aunts. At Hopeton were his first cousins. On the coast he visited the Grants at... More > Elizafield, the Troups at Broadfield, and the Dents at Hofwyl. On St. Simon's he was oftenest at Cannon's Point and Retreat."Charles Spalding Wylly died in 1923 at the age of eighty·seven. As he lay in his coffin he looked majestic clad in his old gray uniform, with the Confederate cross on his breast. His attendants were the representatives of the old families he had known and loved… while the pitiful old Confederate Veterans acted as an escort. He was taken by boat to Frederica, where he was met by all of the islanders, and as the sun set on Memorial Day he was laid to rest beside his wife in that beautiful run-down old cemetery, under the great oak trees and the drifting gray moss." This book contains Wylly's writings about coastal Glynn and McIntosh County, Georgia families and experiences.< Less

Despite recent academic interest in oral history and working-class writing, few other autobiographies reveal daily life for early twentieth-century itinerant gasworks bricklayers, or... More > ‘retort-setters’. Charles Hansford recounts constructing his own home single-handedly aged twenty-one, describes economic privations and poor weather conditions. 'Brick Bonds' documents his relationships with fellow workers and specific building techniques they used (a bond is a brick-laying pattern). His personal memories of enemy action in wartime, working-class social and leisure pursuits in London, the 1924 National Building Strike, and notable ships like Titanic and Bismarck are set into historical context. Hansford reveals an evolving class awareness and trade union activism; a declared Socialist, he readily left building sites in protest, even into the 1970s. His career encompassed Fawley Refinery, Royal Netley War Hospital, British Overseas Airways Company flying-boat bases, and Harrods store in London.< Less
