Vanishing England

Vanishing England
by Peter Hampson Ditchfield

Publisher: Methuen 1911
ISBN/ASIN: 1610336429
Number of pages: 464

Description:
This book is intended not to raise fears but to record facts. We wish to describe with pen and pencil those features of England which are gradually disappearing and to preserve the memory of them. It may be said that we have begun our quest too late; that so much has already vanished that it is hardly worth while to record what is left.
