Memories of St Budeaux
Over 150 photos and illustrations.
From the back cover:
I'm pleased that people enjoyed my books on St Budeaux and Saltash Passage.
This book contains other people's memories and photos and tells St Budeaux has changed over the last one hundred years or so.It covers the early days of St Budeaux when much of the surrounding land was farmers fields and tells of a time when there were no cars, trains or electricity.
Deliveries were made by horse and cart and milk was dispensed from churns long before the days when it was delivered in bottles. A chapter on transport features memories of the first car in Saltash Passage, trams and early buses.
Events mentioned include the annual Regatta, Little Ash Tea Gardens and the Peace Carnival. Also featured are the was years, rationing and the arrival of the American troops who left for D-Day from Saltash Passage.
Taken from letters, newspaper cuttings and archives, I hope this book will be enjoyed by anyone who has an interest in the area.
