I have many old books in my collection. Most of them have been out of print for many years. I will attempt to digitise them as time allows.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If I have put a book on here that belongs to you and you wish to have it remove, please contact me and I will remove it immediately.
This is a small booklet entitled ‘Fawley Official Guide’. I do not know when it was published but post dates the arrival of the railway in 1925. Some interesting telephone numbers - The Falcon Hotel was Fawley 5, F J Giles High Class Draper and Gent’s Outfitter was Fawley 39 and H S Edwards & Sons, Family Bakers, Grocers & provision merchants were Fawley 26.
The PDF file can be found HERE - be warned it is a 14MB download as I always scan at a relatively high definition.
Here are some more OCR’d documents all written in the mid 1970’s under the umbrella of the Fawley & District Local History Group. This group used to meet at the Fawley & District Community Centre in Blackfield
All about the aircraft that have a strong connection with the Waterside area written by Godfrey Blay in 1977. I have been informed that sadly, Godfrey passed away in December 2017.
