"There is in the aspect and situation of Bath a charm which not only appeals at once to the visitor, but is the joy and pride of those most familiar with it. The beautiful city in its garb of soft grey, as it nestles aimd the encircling hills, presents a picture of which the eye never tires". Drawing on a delightfully nostalgic experience of travelling in Britain during a more innocent age, the Ward Lock "Red" Guides offer local information on everything from Angling Rules to population figures and Post Office opening times. As well as providing details on some surprises medicinal attractions...Radium Inhalatorium - the radioactive gas which acts as a tonic and a germicide may be inhaled through the nose or mouth, eye sprays have also proved affacious, especially in gout iritis.With broad sweeps of history and wonderfully quaint details on what appealed to the British holidaymaker at the time, the "Red" Guides are perfect gifts for anyone who loves the nostalgia of a gentler by-gone age or has fallen for the charms of Bath. The first selection of eight titles includes: London, Edinburgh, Oxford, Cambridge, The Lake District, The Yorkshire Dales and North Cornwall.Each title has a newly-written introduction from a locally-known author.show more
