  • Description

    Arthur and George recall their childhood homes and their first married homes and describe the traditional domestic routines. Glenn Miller (1904-1944) was an internationally famous US bandleader, who achieved immense popularity in the UK before and during World War II. He often played with US trombonist and bandleader Tommy Dorsey (1905-1955). The Co-op refers to the Co-operative Wholesale Society: a family of businesses whose activities range from food to finance and from farms to funerals. The first retail co-operative was founded in Rochdale in 1843 and by 1863 a group of retail societies had registered the North of England co-operative Society with the aim of supporting the growing retail consumer co-operative movement.
