An "Official Guide" to the city of Norwich, issued by The Norwich Publicity Association. It is undated but the latest date I can find mentioned in the text is 1963 and so I would think it was published shortly after that.

The main section of the book comprises approx 100 pages of information about the City, its history and present facilities. It also covers areas outside the City, such as the Broads, and principal public attractions in the County. This section includes numerous colour and black & white photographs of street scenes and prominent buildings.

At the front and back of the book are approximately 50 pages of adverts for businesses in the City and surrounding areas. These include a wide range of hotels, shops and other business, many of which no longer exist.

Size 185 x 120mm with paper covers. It has been fairly well used and so there is wear to the covers but the inner pages are in pretty good condition. It appears that there was originally a map fixed inside the back cover but this is no longer there.

Price £4.00.
Postage & packing for UK £2.00.
