This is a blatant advertisement post but just to let you know, Katie and I are talking about the High Street on Tuesday 18 March at 7.30pm in Poole Central Library. The illustrated talk will be based around The Book of Poole High Street but will also include a few extra bits here and there.
The story starts in medieval times and takes us through wars, celebrations, riots, epidemics, royal visits, recession and prosperity to the present day. In some ways the story is the same as that of every high street throughout the country, but of course its characters, buildings and events are unique and have helped to shape the identity of the town we know today.
