Historic Alderney

Working in Jersey’s excellent reference library during Liberation week I came across some very  interesting historic engravings of Alderney I had not seen before.

Dates and artists too indistinct to read.   Photographed from books published by Robert Mudie and Admiral Sir James Saumerez and John Jacob,  on the Channel Islands and British Norman Isles, Published circa 1830  in Guernsey, Paris and London.
