Description

This fascinating collection of nearly 200 old photographs of Derby evokes memories of a bygone age. The scenes of quiet streets, small family-run shops, horse-drawn vehicles and open markets seem remote from the modern city, but surprisingly much that is portrayed here is within living memory of many Derby people. The speed of change has been great and this book will be an eye-opening experience for the younger generation that grew up after the Assembly Rooms were demolished and the inner ring-road built, while at the same time providing a nostalgic journey for those who have known Derby for many years. Drawing mainly on their own extensive postcard and photograph collections, the authors have assembled a book which not only shows the city centre as it was but also takes a look at the suburbs and outlying areas, making this a valuable compilation that will delight all those who know Derby.
