This is an interesting guide book to Newquay in Cornwall. This was a guide for visitors published by the Newquay Urban Council to promote the town as a tourist destination It is undated but there are dates marked inside for 1949.

The guide gives an overview of Newquay and the facilities available, it includes 24 pages of monochrome photos of the town and the surrounding areas. In addition the book contains 42 pages of adverts for hotels and guest houses in the town, many of them including photographs and illustrations of the hotels. These give a very good overall picture of the town. The guidebook also includes a map.

The guide has been used by someone planning their holiday as there are markings inside against several guesthouses. There is also a loose sheet of paper listing the coach and train times from Egham and Paddington to Cornwall. Only 76 shillings from Paddington to Newquay, presumably return.

There are 72 pages plus thin card covers. Size 205 x 130mm. There is some rounding of the corners and slight damage to the spine but overall it is still in good condition.

This guide is now sold.
