Kendal & around

by Norman Holloway | 15 March 2016
Category: General History
Synopsis
In its early years Kendal was well known for wool and cloth making, hence the motto on the town coat of arms 'Pannus Mihi Panis', which translates as 'Wool Is My Bread'. The first indication of a coat of arms for the town was seen on John Speed's map of 1614, which includes what is believed to be the first design in the top right corner; it must have been very well accepted by everyone at the time because it is almost identical to what we have today. In the entrance to the Carnegie library, opened in 1909, can be found the town's coat of arms inlaid with mosaic tiles; it is interesting to note that these arms are not a true likeness of those which are normally seen. In Kendal & Around From Old Photographs, Norman Holloway takes the reader on a visual journey throughout Kendal and the nearby area. Taking in many historical parts of the town, he has brought them to life with around 250 carefully selected and rare old photographs.
