Here are some cuttings
from newspapers, magazines and other sources that didn't make it
into the finished book.
Please note that some of
these cuttings were rejected by the publishers because their
quality was considered to be unsuitable for publication. All
photographs used in the book have been digitally cleaned and most
are as good as new; many of the photographs presented in this
section of the Pennies by the Sea website have not been 'cleaned'
and are therefore seen in their raw format.
