1st edition. "Backyards and gateways feature heavily in Morton's repertoire, a welcome change from what I would call "postcard" views. These were the scenes that never normally got recorded, with the rapidly changing townscape. The people of Halstead can be proud of a man who gave so much to the town, both in his teaching prowess and his exceptional skills as a draughtsman and artist....This book, containing a welcome selection of his work together with a well researched history." (Malcolm Root). Pp.106, black & white illustrations throughout. Pink card covers. Scarce. VG.
