Around Stafford by Roy Lewis
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book reproduces more than 200 fascinating photographs of Stafford and the surrounding area including the villages of Gnosall, Haughton and Sandon. Many of these illustrations, which have been acquired from a wide variety of sources, have never been published before. Lying midway between the conurbations of Stoke-on Trent and Wolverhampton, the county town of Stafford had its own unique history recorded from the 1850s onwards by an increasing number of photographs and postcard producers. The history of the town is examined by looking at the sweeping changes that have taken place in local streets, buildings, schools, churches adn factories such as Lotus shoe manufacturers adn GEC, formerly English Electric. The area's social life is illustrated by events like the annual hospital pageant, village sports meetings, royal visits and other special occasions. Roy Lewis has compiled this book with help from many sources including pictures from the County Museum at Shugborough, the Staffordshire County Council Quality Learning Services Educational Support Unit and private collections.
