Description

This fascinating selection of old photographs of Ellesmere Port shows the town in fine detail, and some of the major changes it has seen over the last hundred years. The once busy port with its warehouses and ships is portrayed in its heyday. We see the sailing ships that lined the docks and we meet some of the many people who were employed in the dockside factories and warehouses, including workers from the flour mills and the corrugated iron works. The port won much trade at the time by offering cheaper port fares than those at nearby Liverpool. These old scenes will bring back powerful memories for some and introduce new residents and a younger generation to a town that looked to the docks and its related industries for its focus. This unique collection of over 250 old photographs, put together by one of the area's best-known local historians, is an important record of the town's social history but will be enjoyed by all who would relish a nostalgic look at the Port's recent past.
