Book: A photographic history of Haverfordwest 1860–1914

Cllr Simon Hancock, who has been Haverfordwest Museum’s curator for 30 years, launched his book ‘A Photographic History of Victorian and Edwardian Haverfordwest 1860 – 1914’ as part of the town’s 900th anniversary celebrations.

The book is a social history of the town between 1860 and 1914 and includes a host of new visual and textual material that has never been seen before. The book has been a monumental undertaking for the local historian, who began his research in 1998, when he originally planned to create a small picture book of the town.

The full report can be found here.
