Every town is subject to change, but Runcorn has been transformed more than most. Three large post-war projects have drastically changed the old town, including the clearance of old shops and houses in the town centre, Runcorn's designation as a New Town, which almost quadrupled the population, and the building of the Jubilee Bridge across the Mersey, the approach roads removing many old familiar landmarks. This book of over 200 archive photographs - the third volume by the author on Runcorn - is a vital record of vanished vistas and traditional practices in times past. The book looks at themes such as the town's maritime heritage, buildings, churches and chapels, schooldays, sport and leisure and social traditions, including the popular annual Runcorn Festival or Carnival, the Whit Monday Walking Days and the village Rose Fetes. This book will bring back memories for old Runcornians and will introduce younger folk to the town's recent history.
