Abingd0n Through Time

The wet flakes of snow that fell yesterday have not settled. There has been too much rain. I went to have a look round the display about the County Hall in the museum and saw the curtains of light from the inside - and they looked almost snow-like.

Back in January a new book about Abingdon, More of Abingdon - Past and Present, was published. On November 25th a second book, Abingdon Through Time, has also been published. It is written by Pamela Horn, who having retired from lecturing and writing books about Social History, particularly the Victorian Era, at Oxford Brookes University, has now written a book, illustrated with many colour photographs, telling the stories of the streets and faces of her home town Abingdon since Victorian times.
