Oswestry and The Border Counties - Pictorial Guide, 1957. Contains a Foreward by the then Mayor, G.H. Wilkes. It is a guide book full of pictures, photographs, local advertisements and all with plenty of text. There is a pull-out near the back showing the Panorama from Oswestry Race Course and there is a fold-out AA Map showing places to drive to from Oswestry and on the reverse a Borough Street Map of Oswestry. Lovely black and white photos of local interest over 12 pages, including:

The Hamlet of Llanarmon
Rodney's Pillar, erected in 1792
Town Centre Car Park showing all the old cars
A View of Oswestry Smithfield Farmer's Market
Bailey Head Market
Willow Street, formerly known as Gwalia Street

Also lots of local advertisements of the time. There is a Trade and Professional Directory at the back listing all the old businesses. Plus, I have photographed the Index - Please see Photos. There is also an article on two Notable Natives: Sir Walford Davies and Wilfred Owen.
94 pages, not including the middle section of photographs but including Index. This book is in Good Condition. The pages are clean and bright. One of the photo pages has a crease on the bottom corner. There is a stamp stating Local Collection on the very first and last pages, as well as on the AA Map. The staples just inside the cover have rusted a little but this has not transferred to the paper. There are some faint age spots on the cover where a number is written top right on the front cover. The bottom right corner of the front cover is slightly creased. It measures 5½ x 8½ inches.

From a smoke-free and pet-free home. The Item will be very carefully packaged.
