Edwardian Worthing: Eventful Era in a Lifeboat Town
Edwardian Worthing The sequel to A Town's Pride and the only book specifically covering this seaside town in the Edwardian era, carefully researched by a descendant of one of the town's oldest families.

Television personality and RNLI Vice-President Raymond Baxter wrote the Foreword

Ten action packed chapters describe civic events, daring Lifeboat rescues and colourful town parades as well as unusual occurrences in this premier seaside resort.

A broad spectrum of maritime characters feature in this extensive narrative, which is informative yet gossipy.

Hundreds of people are mentioned in true stories which recapture the joys as well as the traumas of this bygone time.

Lavishly illustrated with more than 200 authentic photographs and postcards from this relatively short but fascinating period in the town's history, there is something to interest everyone.

Over 200 pages are bound in hardback to form this immensely readable book.

For the discerning reader a folksy storyline connects the true tales in this colourful chronicle. In-depth information, additional facts and names are provided in footnotes at the end of each chapter for the most avid readers.
