I noticed this week, purely by chance, that two great lost works of local history are at long last available again. Popping into Downes Newsagent midweek, I noticed these two fantastic books for sale. I’ve feature both publications heavily here on the blog in the past, and have always said, that should you come across a copy, to bag it. They have both been almost impossible to obtain since publication, and I implore you all to buy a copy as soon as possible. They’re on sale for exactly the same price they were originally, which is a boon. I bought a copy of each to replace my worn ones.
Clarice, Bill and John I know to be fine people who’ve done a great work to record the local history of our area, and I thank them for doing so. I’m not sure if any of their other books are due to come out again, so if anyone knows, please drop me a line and I’ll publicise it here on the blog.
