An interesting book produced by Poole Historical Trust which tells the story of the serious decline in the fortunes of the Town/Harbour of Poole when the Napoleonic Wars ended. Trade declined and with town elections being declared fraudulant, all sorts of lawsuits were mounted which effectively ended in the Town becoming Bankrupt. A fascinating story.
