It's about my interest in local history, and I hope yours.
About seven years ago, I began writing about the history of Wenham.
For reference, I found many historical books and documents, but they are missing

It must have been before 1973, for the 1973 Wenham Annual Town Report says
that the town no longer had a dog pound.
