In My roots, my place, my Albany, history unfolds in the telling by
the Stillwater author, Dawn Evans (née Atkinson).

Daughter of the Albany butcher, she provides a snapshot
of life in Albany Village during the 1940s and 1950s, including
the war years, school and village life, community activities and
rural scenes.

This book will be of interest to many local people, especially
those who have lived in Albany during the past 50 to 60 years.
Members of that close-knit community still meet today. To
Albanyites, history matters.

Reviews


‘Dawn’s intent to write her personal account of life in Albany Village
during the ’40s and ’50s motivated me to explore the area. There,
I found some physical evidence acknowledging the past, but I was
unable to unearth much written evidence focusing on life in Albany
during earlier times. Dawn’s work provides anecdotes, observations
and perceptions that enhance current written evidence of life in
“Albany Village” in former times.’
