Catherine Rothwell's "Around the Channel Islands" covers Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Herm and Sark. Detailed information on the islands from the late 1870s to the present day emerges through the medium of old postcards and photographs, each of which is fully annotated. Experienced local historian Catherine Rothwell presents an account daily life in the islands, trades and customs, historic events and leisure pursuits. Inevitably there have been numerous shipwrecks along the wildly beautiful coastline and other maritime aspects are covered including, of course, the struggle to gain a harvest from the sea. Famous residents from the past are remembered here: Victor Hugo, General Boulanger and the 'Jersery Lily' - Lillie Langtry. This will be a treasure trove of stunning photographs, informatively captioned by an author who loves these.
