The Hotel Bel-Air, Sark. Souvenir.
With the Management's Compliments:

The Hotel Bel-Air, Sark. Souvenir.

The Guernsey Press Co.. n.d. [1930s]. Stapled booklet, 44pp, in printed brown card covers. Landscape format, 12x15.25cms, with much local information and history about the island as well as information about the Hotel, illustrated with many photographs and a map, and with a number of advertisements by C.I. tradespeople and businesses. Staples rusting but holding firm, otherwise very clean. Definitely a pre-occupation guide: sombre footnote from Wikipedia: in 1942 'German soldiers managed to set fire to their headquarters, the Hotel Bel Air, which was burnt to the ground.' Nice copy. Very Good.
