A wonderful collection of essays. Mr Sinclair can do no wrong. His writing is addictive if you love London and her history. There is plenty here to discover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written prose, 17 Jun. 2015

This review is from: Outside Mullingar (Paperback)
A truly realistic view of rural Irish feuding. Beautifully written prose, funny, sad and engrossing altercations between neighbours over a tiny slice of land. Read it twice to absorb every bit of it. Better still, try to see the amazing play.

4.0 out of 5 stars This book does what it says on the cover -, 12 May 2015

Lovely big book for colouring in - when there is nothing on the TV I fancy, I can raid my granddaughter's supply of felt-tips and create stunning patterns for myself. Some of the pages have suggested colours displayed, which I find a little off-putting - I prefer to choose my own. Otherwise, there is plenty of variations and designs to choose from for those "what can I do now" moments. A brilliant idea.


Wings Over Meir: The Story of the Potteries Aerodrome
Wings Over Meir: The Story of the Potteries Aerodrome
by William Cooke
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Well presented local history., 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was my late husband's dream place as a child, brought up in Meir.
I wanted to learn a little more about the history of the place for myself, and this book by William Cooke is so well researched and presented, I could better understand why it held such a place in my husband's heart. What struck me most was the tragic loss of opportunity to make better use of facilities offered to the Potteries for their trade. Not many towns could boast such an airfield (or aerodrome, as they called it) with a possible daily link with London, but the powers that be turned every suggestion for development down over the years, ending finally with giving the field over to a well known superstore!. I found this fascinating look into history very holding and recommend it to anyone interested in flying and localized history.
