[PERRANPORTH] REMINISCENCES OF PERRANPORTH FROM THE YEAR 1833, by Capt. William Roberts
Perranzabuloe Old Cornwall Society has done Cornwall a service in re-issuing this fascinating book, originally published in 1939 and now scarce. "William Roberts and his generation were the last to grow up in a Perranporth dominated by the Cornish industries of mining and pilchard seine fishing... Fortunately for us he decided to relate his knowledge of earlier times... in a published book." (Blurb). This is an engrossing insight for all who only know the town in its current guise of seaside resort.
200 pages, illustrations, folding map.
