More Description

"Even in those days, kids in grade school were slaves to fashion and creatures of habit. One of those creatures of our habit was the infamous raccoon skin cap, a must head covering for a ten-year-old boy. No doubt the clothing fad originated with the popular 1936 movie," Daniel Boone, "starring George O'Brien." Author Raymond M. Featherstone Jr. details the experiences of his middle class Indianapolis family during the Great Depression and World War II, offering a lighthearted and humorous look at the 1930s and 1940s through the eyes of a young boy. Journey to the heart of Featherstone's neighborhood as he describes his childhood antics, eccentric neighbors, and family escapades. Featherstone recalls the fads, fashions, and expressions of the era, and includes several thumbnail sketches of people, places, and things in the public eye. Ranging from a brief look at the 1933-34 Chicago World's Fair to the history of the yo-yo and to Featherstone's daily trips to the drugstore for Old Lady Schenzel's bottle of Virginia Dare port wine, "Naptown Memories: One Boy's Life Growing Up In Indianapolis-1930s & 1940s" paints a charming yet realistic portrait of this significant era in America's history.
