THE ABINGDON I REMEMBER

 

Transcribed from a copy held by Judy White, with added sub-headings and minor changes to punctuation. The date and author are unknown. Describes Abingdon c.1920, but probably written c.1960.

 

Despite being a very personal account and lack of a date or author, it is probably the best detailed description of Abingdon as it was in the early 20th century. Somebody must know who the author was?
