By: Ron Brown (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Pictorial books such as this dedicated to the past are not only invaluable to local historians, but also of interest to anyone wishing to know more about the history of the place they live or work in, for old photographs can provide fascinating insight and a tool to compare past and present. The Hampshire town of Lee-on-the-Solent is perfect for such comparisons, for although it has only been in existence under 130 years as a coastal settlement, in that time it has lost so much: a pier, railway, swimming pool,unique entertainment complex, and a large naval base and airfield. Well-known local author Ron Brown has compiled over 230 photographs, many not previously published, to provide a nostalgic reminder of the Lee that has passed.
The name of Ron Brown is synonymous with local history in the Portsmouth area. Over three decades he has produced many books and thousands of magazine and newspaper articles; his ten year stint as the Nostalgia writer and columnist for The News gained Ron a considerable number of readers. Ron was also a film and theatre critic for some years. Ron currently lives in Fareham.
