Synopsis

Around Fareham From Old Photographs offers a captivating glimpse into the history of the area surrounding the town, providing the reader with a visual representation of Fareham's intriguing and chequered history. Drawing upon an eclectic collection of over 200 photographs, Alice James presents the reader with an insight into the past and present life of this busy market town. Although views of thriving High Streets, vanished buildings and well-known houses are included, the emphasis throughout is on the people who were born, or settled, here. Fareham From Old Photographs provides something for everyone, whether they have lived in the Fareham area all their lives, or whether they are visiting for the first time. Many poignant memories are given a new lease of life and, for those who still remember, Around Fareham From Old Photographs offers a trip down memory lane; for others this charming book will be a voyage of discovery.

Alice James was a proud Lancashire Lass, born in September 1921 and educated at Newnham College, Cambridge. She taught at several schools before taking up the post of Headmistress at Wykeham House, where she remained before retiring and marrying Lieut. Cdr. James ("Jimmy"). Throughout her career she always continued with her local activities, which included founding and running Fareham Local History Group, undertaking a key role in the setting up of Westbury Manor Museum and the restoration of Cams Hall. Instinctively recognising the importance of preserving local history she collected and recorded a great quantity of material over the years, material which might otherwise have been lost, and built up her already extensive knowledge of the district. This acquisition of local information included a great deal of research into the Delme family who lived at Cams Hall for over 100 years. The Fareham Past and Present booklets came into being as a result of her work. These booklets, originally edited by Alice, are still being published by the local history group two or three times a year.
