Description
Our Beloved Fareham is a selection of images of an intriguing town which has inspired varying degrees of devotion over the years. In 1878 it was described as a small but ancient and improving market town and port, pleasantly situated a the head of a narrow navigable creekA" . However, fifty years later another writer described it as A singularly unattractive little town with hardly any vestige of antiquity...the parish church of St Peter is a strange buildingA". Fortunately there are plenty of FarehamitesA" who love their home town and many images from this wonderful collection have been provided by Alice's enthusiastic readers, while others have come from her own extensive collection. Chapters include 'The Butcher, the Baker, the Candlestick maker', 'Railway and other Transport', 'The Port of Fareham' and 'Schools and their Activities' to name just a few. Some poignant memories in this charming book are given a new lease of life, offering a trip down memory lane for some; for others this book will be a voyage of delightful discovery.
