This is the official guide to Bangor for 1940, issued free by Bangor Borough Council. It may have been kept as a souvenir of a holiday in Bangor.

 

In his foreward, the Mayor, William H.M. Millar, says : Many, owing to the present War, may be thinking that they will forego their annual holiday. This surely is not a wise attitude to adopt, as all of us, after a severe winter of frost and snow, not to say anything of blackout depression, must derive a physical and mental benefit from a period of relaxation.
