Hayle exerts a powerful attraction over anyone who has spent time there. Very much part of the industrial revolution, this town has produced more than its fair share of engineers and innovators. Although much of the indusrty has departed, to be replaced with tourism, Hayle retains all of its industrial charm and that sense of togetherness amongst its inhabitants (apart from the traditional Copperhouse and Foundry rivalries!) Marlene Rew and her son, Martin, have compiled this book as a pictorial record of some of that social history that is powerfully embedded in the bedrock of Hayle culture. Within these covers are some 150 photographs that document the past of this small town and its close knit community. Included in this selection are images of the people and places that have been lost in the course of the twentieth century. The book pays special attention to school classes, churches, chapels, industry, transport and, of course, the popular annual regatta and carnival. If you know Hayle, you will love this book for its evocative glimpses at the way things used to be and the people who have lived here.
