The Man Who Found The Broads – George Christopher Davies


This is a fascinating book especially for those who have followed articles about sailing on the Norfolk Broads. This book provides an excellent contrast to these articles and is in effect two books for the price of one. In addition to the informative biography of Davies this book contains a reprint of the 48 photographs together with their original captions from Davies’ book “The Scenery Of The Broads And Rivers Of Norfolk And Suffolk.” As a collection these photographs give an interesting insight into the scenery and boating of the Broads during the early 1880s. From the age of twenty five Davies had a book published almost every year for the next twenty five years but it is for his work about the Norfolk Broads which he is best remembered
