Drawing upon an eclectic collection of over 200 photographs, Joan Astell presents the reader with an insight into the areas past and present life. Although views of thriving High Streets, vanished buildings and well-known houses are included, the emphasis throughout is on the people who were born, or settled, here. Browsing through the photographs, the reader will notice the increase in the number of vehicles on the road, shops that once sold new goods are now estate agents or charity shops. Green fields have been transformed into industrial estates, houses or ring roads. Many poignant memories are given a new lease of life, offering a trip down memory lane for some- for others this charming book will be a voyage of discovery.
