A large volume containing a thorough survey of the Amounderness area in 1937, including chapters on geology and physical geography, antiquarian and historical factors, communications by road, rail, water and air, and zoning. Contains extensive appendices listing place names, antiquarian sites and buildings, dates bearing upon the past development of the area, the committee, correspondence related to the traffic system, a list of O.S. maps of the area, ancient relics in the area, census figures, and others. Fully illustrated with coloured maps and other illustrations. Unfortunately the pull out maps in the rear pocket are absent.
The report is hardback and comes in the brown cloth, with gilt lettering to the spine and cover. The boards are in good condition with only some minor scratches, wear and marks on the back cover. The edges of the book block are lightly tanned, and the first and last few pages have some staining along the fore edge, but otherwise the pages are clean, the maps are bright, and the spine is tight.
A rare find, this would be of particular interest to anyone interested in the local history and town planning of the Fylde area of Lancashire.
