This is a short history of Birkenhead and Liverpool.
The author, May Parker, lived in what was known as the 'north end' of Birkenhead - in other words the 'common' edge of the town.
Nevertheless her family retained a strict and respectable lifestyle.
A Northern Lass describes not only historical changes, but also pleasure and catastrophe.
This poignant book describes with a touch of humour, another time, place and way of life.
