Plymouth : Tales from the Past
99 photos and illustrations.
For some time now, I have been writing about my favourite tales from Plymouth's past in a blog on the internet. Articles from the blog are regularly featured in The Herald. I know that there are many people who would rather sit down and flick through the pages of a book than read content from the internet on a computer screen. Many people aren't connected to the internet and for this reason, I've compiled all my favourite stories of Plymouth's past in a new book. There are tales of famous people connected with Plymouth including Charles Darwin, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Scott of the Antarctic, Cora Pearl, Lillie Langtry, Nancy Astor and many more. There are also stories of Christmases during the War years, trams, entertainment, the Civil War, Romans, pubs, buildings, executions, carnivals, comedians and much more. More recent history includes articles about Plymouth Zoo, Westward Television, Benny Hill and The Beatles visit to the ABC. I hope that the new book will be of great interest to the many people who enjoy reading about the history of Plymouth and who also enjoy the many quirky stories that originate from its past.
