Norman Jacobs is one of Britain's most prolific local history and sports writers with 25 published books to his name. On leaving college in 1967 he went to work at the British Museum where he stayed until early retirement in 2004. His book BEHIND THE COLONNADE (The History Press) was an affectionate look at what went on behind the scenes at the museum during his nearly 4 decades of working there. In 2015 John Blake published his memoir PIE ‘N’ MASH & PREFABS - a lively, detailed and humorous picture of a post-War Hackney childhood set against a backdrop of events of the period.
