from the 1920s

by William (‘Bill’) Mead

It is a view of the town and surrounding countryside compiled from what might be called ‘‘naive knowledge’’ unwittingly observed. There is no accounting for the things that stick in the mind and those that are forgotten.

‘Aylesbury had a population of about 12,000. It was located upon a hill... except when coming from Bierton, its inclines made the elderly puff and caused the syclists to stretch their muscles.

92 pages, hardback, with 23 illustrations.
