Synopsis
Having seen the modern Preston skyline a visitor maybe forgiven for thinking this town has little surviving evidence of its history. This would be a grave mistake for although much has been lost there is also much still to see and if one looks a little deeper, one discovers that there is a wealth of recorded evidence of its recent history. This fascinating collection of over 200 old photographs shows not only scenes of the town itself but also some of the Prestonians who have lived and worked here, from the 1850s to the 1950s. In this book, the author;s third on the town, the photographs have been selected to give an overall view of the town so that the reader sees sights and activities that would have been known to Preston's ordinary people rather than just pictures of the town's 'dignitaries' and 'official events'.
