Abstract:

Down Poona Road, past the Grove Bowling Club, the young Richard Cobb conducts his reader through the streets of Turnbridge Wells in the Twenties and Thirties, taking us into cluttered drawing rooms and dining rooms set for tea. His is a chronicle of a south-eastern community; of the middle classes, their servants and an army of shopkeepers; of largely harmless snobbery, pretension and genteel scandal. In precise and generally loving detail, Cobb presents a world in miniature - a place of wonder and discovery.
