The third title commissioned by Amberley Publishing, Secret Bude contains lesser known facts and information about Bude’s characters, history, and tales. A must for visitors to the town, it will also probably teach locals something new, too.
A commissioned title, Bude is here presented through old postcards, with extended captions, providing locals and visitors with a flavour of the town, and surrounding villages/hamlets. Complementing Bude Through Time, it contains some beautiful images from local collector, Ray Boyd, to whom grateful thanks.
Amberley’s Through Time series compares past and present in UK towns and cities. This book was commissioned as a result of Dawn’s extensive hyperlocal knowledge and website activity.
The book, containing historical images from the North Cornwall seaside town of Bude, and contemporary images for comparison purposes, has proven popular. The appeal of the book is in its simple comparison of then and now.
