Synopsis
This fascinating collection of over 200 photographs, drawings and documents offers a nostalgic glimpse into the history of Bewdley - including the former parishes of Wrivvenhall, Ribbesford and Dowles - during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The important role of the river Severn, which allowed Bewdley to develop into a thriving river port, is explored, as well as that of the Wyre Forest, which played an important role in providing work in the area. The volume also recalls aspects of daily life, from school and church life, through to leisure activities and grand civic occasions, including the presentation of the freedom of the borough to Stanley Baldwin. Compiled by the Bewdley Historical Research Group, this book is a valuable pictorial history which will awaken the nostalgic memories for some, while offering a unique glimpse of the past for others.
