I like this book very much, it shows Blackburn in the past, as it was, an accurately documented read.
Everyone I have shown this book to, has asked me to order them a copy.

Went to the book launch to buy the book for my dad. It was lovely to meet the men behind the book. My dad is absolutely thrilled with his signed (by all three) copy. He is methodically working his way through it and loving reminiscing about Blackburn in its heyday
