Description

Chester is a city with a long and distinguished history. Famous for splendid and historic buildings such as the Tudor House and for its Roman remains, including the amphitheatre, the city is also well known for its fourteenth century Rows, its Cathedral and even an Anchorite's cell. This fascinating collection of over 200 photographs not only pays tribute to the architectural history of the city, but also recollects and recreates the everyday life of the people of the city over 150 years. The streets in which they shopped, the houses in which they lived, their celebrations, methods of transport, customs, clothes, work and leisure activities are all remembered. From the skill of fishermen with draft nets on the River Dee to dukes, gentry and royalty, the images in this selection bring to life, once more, a past that has vanished forever. Pat O'Brien was a local author and one of the city's Blue Badge Guides. In this, his fourth book in The Archive Photograph Series, he joined with local photographer Michael Day, who has an extensive collection of photographic images, to produce a remarkable and informative selection of pictures that will evoke memories of Chester that have long lain hidden in the reader's mind. The charm, beauty and vibrant spirit of the city are vividly portrayed in a volume that will delight all those who know and love the city.
