INTRODUCTION TO INTERESTING SNIPPETS FROM HUNMANBY PARISH MAGAZINES 1890-1962
The collection of books from which these extracts were taken, were rescued as they were about to be consigned to a bonfire,

They contain a fascinating insight into local life during the above period, including the two great wars.
It is intended to regularly publish mw extracts over the coming months.
Any comments would be welcome
