A Worthing guide like no other

Judyth Gwynne

Spokesman Rob Blann said: “An unusual insight into the construction of Worthing between the First and Second World Wars, telling the stories of two very different young men, whose lives were changed irrevocably by unforeseen events Out of the ordinary by the inclusion of charming reminiscences of the writer’s mother as a young girl, bringing reality and freshness to the period of the two men, her father George and her husband William. is a Worthing guide like no other; the author has shed light on the life, manners and customs of Worthing in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with access to unpublished family archives. emphasis on the architects and builders of the time, there is, so far, only a dry-as-dust record of the construction and development of the city, but this volume reveals the human element and the unusual events that influenced the two main characters. A cornucopia of characters and scenes, it’s a must-read for local residents past and present, who will be both intrigued and sometimes amused by this addition to their town’s history. . Perhaps, like me, readers will find it hard to put down once the pages open, and I highly recommend it, scoring ten out of ten as entertaining and readable, jam-packed with interesting Worthing information.
