From the rear side cover: Ray Roberts is well qualified to write this booklet about Malvern Wells in the 1940s, as he was born there in 1933, and brought up in the village as was his father before him. He went to the same village school that his father had attended and furthermore their formative years were in each case spent at a time of approaching war; in his father's case, World War 1, and in Ray's, World War II.

Most of his life has been spent in Malvern where he ran his own business as a T.V. engineer, having spent some years in the R.A.E working in electronics. He paints a vivid picture of the village as it was in his childhood and youth with references to today's buildings and the people who, during the 1940s lived and worked in them. He also highlights the fact that there were buildings and trades in those days which are no longer present in the village due to social change.

For both visitors to Malvern Wells and locals alike, this little book will make fascinating reading particularly for those interested in the changes that have taken place there in the short period of one lifetime.

The condition of the booklet is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is an old price and a small price sticker, both on the rear side cover
