Local historian Bob Booth will be in town this weekend to publicise his latest collection of historic town photographs called King’s Lynn in Colour 1960s to 1980s.
There’s an opportunity to discuss your memories with Bob at Waterstones book shop in Norfolk Street on Saturday from 11am, where he will also be signing copies of his book.
Bob began working as a teacher at the college in King’s Lynn known locally as ‘The Tec’. He spent 11 happy years teaching chemistry there before he began to work full-time in ‘Bayes’ – the well known record shop in the town which he owned along with his wife Janet.
Writing and publishing his books came about more by accident than design, after a friend lent him some wonderful photographs of the old yards in King’s Lynn taken in the 1930s. Certain there would be many other people with local connections, that shared his interest and love for the town and it’s history, he started putting together the first of a series of books.
King’s Lynn in Colour 1960s to 1980s (Paperback 64 pages)
by Robert Booth is available from Waterstones priced £9.99.
