History in the Raw
The answer to whether history can have a humorous side is, yes it can, and the proof is, ‘History in The Raw Pre-war life in Pembrokeshire’. This is a ‘hilarious’ (Pembrokeshire Life Book Review, October 2014), laugh out loud treat, full of social history as it was lived in Pembrokeshire during the first half of the 20th century. It is related to Mark Muller by the late Bill Jenkins and is illustrated beautifully by Carole Dean. It’s only fair to warn you that it is very bawdy and a suggested sub title has been offered as, ‘The Sexual History of Northern Pembrokeshire between 1900 and 1950’. You might like to bear in mind that all proceeds from sale are going to the cancer care charity, ‘Adam’s Bucketful of Hope’ who published it. It is available from Victoria Bookshop, Bridge Street, Haverfordwest and Vincent Davies Store, Fishguard Road, Haverfordwest @ £10.
People Who Shaped Haverfordwest
Is a collection of mini-biographies of politicians, artists, poets, generals, admirals and others who have all had an effect on the development of Pembrokeshire and its county town. It is published by Haverfordwest Civic Society and has been described by The University of The Third Age as, ‘a little gem’. It too is available from Victoria Bookshop, Bridge Street, Haverfordwest and Vincent Davies Store, Haverfordwest @ £10 and remains the best seller that Victoria Bookshop has had.
