Official Guide to Walton-le-Dale
A. J. Berry
Dundee: The Simmarth Press, circa 1920s
A potted history guide book of Walton-le-Dale and Bamber Bridge with illustrations, plus adverts for local companies.
Not dated but looks to be around 1920s from the advertisements. Population census figures are given for 1901 but not 1911, however a couple of businesses advertise dealing in wirelesses which may indicate a later printing of the original text.
Attractive artwork to front cover.
Card covers. 28pp including b/w illustrations and adverts, plus adverts to covers. Size: 7.25 x 5 inches approx. (181mm x 126mm).
Covers a little dusty and worn, light creasing. Pages a little creased to lower corner; staples rusting; dusty.
Overall, light wear but otherwise a reasonably nice, clean copy.
