Bryan Kelly was born in 1931. His father was a docker, and he and his seven brothers and sisters grew up in a tiny terraced house in Anfield. Although life for Bryan and his fanily was hard, he recalls his time growing up with great fondness. Stories of friends and neighbours abound, interwoven with recollections of schooldays, local characters, wartime (and particularly the blitz), church activities and recreation, as well as anecdotes from day-to-day family life - the scams and the tricks that helped to make life bearable, and the sound and smells fo Liverpool in the 1930s and '40s. For What It's Worth is sure to conjure up many nostalgic memories for all those who know and love the city of Liverpool. Illustrated with images from the family album as well as old photographs of Liverpool, this humorous and poignant book brings to life an era that has long gone.
