Hemel Hempstead (Archive Photographs 1 & 2)
Paperback 256 pages (April 15, 2001). This excellent collection of over 400 old photographs of Hemel Hempstead was originally published as two volumes in the popular Archive Photographs Series and is now available bound as a single volume. The fascinating sequence of photographs forms an important pictorial record of the town's streets, buildings and people as they experienced the changes of more than eighty years, from the nineteenth century to the late 1960s. Local historian Eve Davis accumulated this large collection of images of Hemel Hempstead from a variety of private and public archives and is particularly grateful to the large number of local individuals who gave assistance with the search for material and information. The result is a book that will give much nostalgic pleasure to all that know this town.

Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted and Tring: A Century of Change
Hardcover 192 pages (September 2002). One word sums up Hemel Hempstead's tumultuous 20th century - change. Throughout the last hundred years, the town and its surroundings have been convulsed by an uninterrupted spell of upheaval. This transformation, which has seen the area go from a rural retreat to a burgeoning commuter town on the lip of the ever-expanding capital, has left no quarter of local life untouched. Here, in a selection of 300 beautiful photographs from the Gazette's archives, the story of Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted and Tring's 20th century unfolds - from the peaceful pre-war years, through an era of conflict and concession, to the painful and protracted birth of (and opposition to) the New Town, and the emerging landscape still recognisable today. The photographs in this collection, which have been built up over the years by the Gazette's enthusiastic readers, paint a picture of a place constantly adapting to meet the needs of a dynamic society. This photographic record of local life is essential reading for anyone attempting to understand the town - and how it came to be that way.

Her new book is a compendium of fascinating facts that will be a revelation to many.

Peculiar survivals, such as the Hertfordshire Spike and the Pudding Stone, St Albans Mummers and the Bovingdon Revels, are included - as are curious buildings, puzzling theories, urban myths, local legends, and much more.
