National Library makes capital gains

The seventh book in the Bermuda National Trust's Bermuda's Architectural Heritage Series was recently gifted to the Bermuda National Library.

The book, titled Hamilton — Town and City is a collection of stories and the history behind the buildings of the City of Hamilton.

The other books in the series have been about individual parishes, but this volume will be of interest to all, as it relates to the Island's capital.

Hamilton — Town and City is almost a totally volunteer effort. It was designed by Dace Ground, the widow of Sir Richard Ground, the former Chief Justice, and penned by David L. White, the former Editor of The Royal Gazette, before his death.

The book launch is just in time for the anniversary celebrations set to take place next year to commemorate the 1815 move of the seat of Government from St George's to Hamilton.

The next book in the series will be Pembroke Parish by Dr Clarence Maxwell.
