Introduction by journalist and local historian Chris Aspin. These stories in Blackburn dialect verse written under the non-de-plume Jack o' Ann's were taken from the Blackburn Times over a period of 33 years from around 1880 onwards. They were written by the publisher's great grandfather. With four black & white photos of the author and the area from the 1890s plus some of his hand-written correspondence. Scarce.
