This photographic portrait of a period at once familiar and remote recalls the Old Town was all the town there was and the quay had a flour mill, coal yards and warehouses. Covering the period between the earliest and the middle part of the century, it includes sections on Tea Treats and other parades, on the Obby Oss and Maying, on voluntary groups like the lifeboat sevice and fire brigade, and on the neighbouring villages of Trevone, St Merryn and Harlyn. Emphasizing the people who have shaped Padstow's character, it names most of the people pictured, and modern residents will enjoy identifying former school friends, family and work mates. This fascinating selection will offer those who can still remember the opportunity to revisit the vanished Padstow of the past; for others, it will be a voyage of discovery and surprise.
