From Woolverstone FB Group:

From Steve Williams:
"I am hoping that David Rye & Brian Ives might be interested in seeing these Woolverstone pages that feature the Obelisk recenty shown on these pages. They are in a book that was salvaged from a skip, hence the damp staining and crinkled pages, however, a very interesting book worthy of preservation. As can be seen from the title page it is the East Suffolk Illustrated book dated 1908 /9."

There are 35 wartime photos with explanation, part of explanation:
"I am a Stowmarket historian so I will not be able to contribute much to your site. However, I thought you and your members might be interested in seeing these photos from 1944."

A further 40 - "This is the last sequence of photos from the 'Exercise ATTACK' list from the George Wilden Collection. Are there any reckognisable features from 1944 still visible today?"
