Description

This fascinating volume of over 200 photographs and illustrations, the vast majority never before published, offers a unique glimpse into the history of Coventry over the past 150 years. Once a medieval walled city, Coventry has trived as home to a variety of industries, from the weaving and dying of cloth and silks which originally caused the city to prosper, through to watchmaking in the eighteenth century and the boom in the construction of motor cars in the twentieth century. Supported by accompanying text, the images in this book provide a nostalgic pictorial history of this diverse and remarkable city, and the varied lives of its residents, at work and play. The result is a volume that will serve as a touching reminder of the past for some while revealing the town's history to others.
