in Pictures was published
in 2004 and beautifully complements the first publication. The
book is a collection of nearly 500 photographs originating from
the turn of the 19th Century to the present day. There is an explanatory
text of some 40 pages and in all the volume amounts to 184 stunning
pages in full colour. The modern photography is mostly the work
of Roger Day of Park Road, Stevington.

from Bedfordshire County Life
often we live for today and neglect to record daily events as
they unfold. More often than not the history of our forbears is
lost, or at least sparce. The people of the Bedfordshire village
of Stevington, however are not so inclined. Stevington In Pictures
is a superb collection of the photographic memeories of the people,
the characters and the way of life in the village. With a mix
of historical older photographs complemented with the contemporary
way of life in the 21st century, this magnificent book is a tribute
to those involved in its compilation. There are 483 beautifully
reproduced photos, all of which are in colour, with the exception
of the historical and much older black and white selection. If
there was ever a local history book to be included in your collection
then Stevington In Pictures is one. Words will never do it justice
in the way the photographs do".
cost of the book is £17.50. Please add £3.50 for postage and packing within the UK.
