The story of Jimmy and his family is set in Post World War Two Australia, a period in which I the author grew up in. The dialog is typical of the era; a lot of the euphemisms are still in use today although sadly with the country becoming more cosmopolitan some have been lost.
Australia, at the time my story was changing from an agricultural nation to a broader economy encompassing mining and manufacturing.
I've avoided using place names as the story is fiction and so irrelevant, I've also where possible tried to keep close to history as I could.
The story is complete, 'in the can' as they say; I will be posting four or five chapters each week to gain the maximum 'showcase' time. There will be a further story continuing on from this one, some of it is mapped out but will be some while before it ready to post.
