I was in Southport recently and was amazed to discover that the book North Meols and Southport: A History by Peter Aughton was out of print. This is of course the book with 20 family trees in an appendix including a Blundell one, nmaely mine! However I did find a shop which claimed to have about 40 paperbacks in a box in its store room. I immediately grabbed six so as to have copies for Miles and James and their kids one day. I thought others might like to know of this little cache. The guy to deal with is Laurens Hardman. His address is 5-7 Market St in Southport. The phone is 01704 532064 and his fax is 01704 534110. The shop is called Broadhursts of Southport Ltd and has a lovely stock of SW Lancashire books. The book is 224 pages long and the guy was asking £9.95 per copy.
