Yeovil Memories, Paperback / softback Book

Yeovil Memories Paperback / softback

Part of the Memories series


Yeovil Memories covers a wide range of stories, from a tragic drowning in the River Yeo in 1856, the hardships of the savage winter of 1861 and that of two families who lost their cottages in a fire in February 1906, the lucky escape of a Westland test pilot as his aircraft broke up in mid-air in August 1934, and the top of the music charts of August 1952, to pop concerts in the Liberal Hall in 1965. Jack Sweet seeks to jog the collective memory of Yeovil's past, reliving memories, good, bad and occasionally downright awful (at least for those who had the misfortune to experience one and remain to tell the tale). Perhaps the Californian poet Clarency Urmy (1858-1923) summed it up;`Old Songs are best - how sweet to hear. The strains of home and memory dear!Old books are best - how tale and rhymeFloat with us down the stream of time!'
