This lovely book gives us an insider view into the world of women working at Tate & Lyle's factories in the East End of London during the twentieth century.
This book offers us a rich depiction of a part of our country's social history and heritage before, during and after World War II, preserving the memories of some wonderful ladies, depecting the camerarderie amongst the workers, and portraying the sense of community of those living and working around Silvertown back then that has now been lost.
I enjoyed this journey into the past accompanied by these fascinating, fabulous sugar girls, and found it a very engaging and interesting snapshot into their lives.
