Has this sentence a print mistake or, on the contrary, is there any meaning I don't cath?
The downfall of the family in his father Peter's day had been trading with pirates.
Perhaps it is a way to say it. Wouldn't have it to be Peter's days and not day.
Any clue, please. Thank You
It's idiomatic to say "day" with "Back in [my] day" to refer to a entire period of time, usually covering years.
Sometimes it's just "back in the day" to mean "a long time ago."
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
