This engaging collection of over 200 archive photographs reveals some of the changes that have taken place in the Worcestershire town of Pershore over the last century. The Pershore Festival, Empire Day celebrations and the annual fair, first held in 1266, are some of the local events featured here. Pershore, famous for its fruit and vegetables - the egg plum was one of the main crops harvested here and the town was once home to the locomotive the Pershore Plum - was prominent during the heyday of hop-picking and plentiful fruit harvests. Images of these more abundant and busy times in Pershore's agricultural past are recalled here. This volume explores all aspects of everyday life, from shops and businesses to churches and schools. There is also a chapter about wartime life in the town. "Pershore Revisted" is a valuable pictorial history that will delight anyone interested in the town and its people.
