In the August of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee year, a Charter conferring the dignified title of City upon the town of Nottingham was signed. In 1997 the City of Nottingham celebrated its one hundredth anniversary. In this book, a centenary of dramatic changes is reviewed through old photographs.
The exchange has been replaced by the Council House, the Victoria Railway Station has come and gone (with the exception of its clock tower), slum properties have been cleared, the River Trent has been tamed and diverted, and the Clifton Bridge has been built. All these changes and more are documented in this pictorial history book.
