John van der Kiste presents an engrossing, day by day compendium of Plymouth trivia - and not-so-trivial historical fact - from 1 January 1824, when Robert Peel granted Plymouth Dock leave to change its name (it became Davenport eight days later), to 31 December 1999 and pre-Millennium traffic chaos around Sainsbury's superstore: 'it seems as though people think the end of the world is coming' quoth the manager. No jacket.
