It used to be like this . . . by George R Haynes, this edition edited by Lesley Telford and Violetta Vokes. George R Haynes was born in 1906 in Beach Cottage, Castlehaven and lived there most of his life. He recorded  in fascinating detail the day to day life of the time saying I have written all that I thought should be recorded before it is completely forgotten, about things now totally gone.
