Paignton ScrapbookeBook - 2007
Peggy Parnell has lived in Paignton virtually all her life, and has been fascinated by the town's history for as long as she can remember. Her new book, A Paignton Scrapbook, is neither a volume of old photographs nor a chronological history of the town; rather, it's a 'lucky dip' into the past - telling stories about well-known local characters, filling us in on the history of local businesses, exploring the truth behind various myths and legends that have grown up over the years, reminding readers of long-gone buildings, remembering bygone pubs and clubs - and much more. A delightful selection of illustrations has been chosen to complement the lively and entertaining text. Anyone who knows and loves Paignton, as resident or visitor, will enjoy A Paignton Scrapbook.
