Poppyland in Pictures

Poppyland in Pictures


In stock


Poppyland in Pictures was first published in 1983, to commemorate a hundred years from when Clement Scott, the eminent Victorian theatre critic and travel writer, first came to north Norfolk, coined the name Poppyland and wrote about the area in his columns in the Daily Telegraph. This second edition now has some illustrations in colour and new material which has come to light since the first edition.

A visit by the publishers to the library of the University of Rochester in New York State gave the opportunity to investigate the letters and correspondence Scott collected over the years. This has cast new light on his work as a writer and theatre critic, but in the context of the Poppyland story, it has also confirmed many of the stories about the famous and infamous of the late Victorian theatre world coming to the Cromer area.
