This is the second part of Harry Goulding s autobiography, following on from his account of his childhood years (1905 to 1927) growing up in working-class Grimsby ( Henry the Ninth ) The details of his ordinary yet eccentric life were written down in longhand on sheets of paper rescued from a skip and lay dormant for many years after his death in 1985 until transcribed into two volumes. Man s Estate deals with his volatile teaching career in Grimsby at both primary and secondary level; his lack of proficiency at school politics; his careers as a local referee, pig-keeper and member of the Home Guard;his son s triumph over early adversity; his final, happy years teaching and the leaving of Grimsby to try out various new experiences in the Blackpool area.
