My Dover by Joe Harman  



Following the great success of 'The Life and Times of a Dovorian Lillian Kay', Derek Leach has produced a new book about another well-known Dovorian. Joe has lived all his 86 years in Dover. He was a tram conductor, a bus driver and an ambulance man and was in Dover throughout the Second Wold War. Throughout his life he has been a keen photographer and observer of Dover life and has been actively involved in it as well as researching many aspects of Dover's more recent history.

This book tells his own personal and often amusing story interwoven with his research, much of which has been published over the last twenty years in ' Bygone Kent ' and ' the Dover Society Newsletter'.

The book is lavishly illustrated and most of the photographs come from Joe's own collection
