Description

This absorbing collection of over 150 archive images documents some of the major events and changes that have occurred in Northwich over the years, mainly from the end of the nineteenth century through to local government reforms in 1973. Removing the devastation left by the collapsing salt mines began in old Northwich when the Local Board of Health and Urban District Council undertook one of the largest slum clearance projects outside a major city. The consequent building of new estates saw the town expand into the Weaver Valley. From aerial views of the town, Victorian postcards and archive snapshots, each intriguing picture records what life was like in the town during the last 150 years. Images include scenes of flooding and subsidence, marching bands, shops, pubs, miners and even a visiting Liverpudlian band in 1963 - The Beatles. J. Brian Curzon is a prolific writer on Cheshire history. Each image in this volume is accompanied by detailed and informative text detailing the rich history of Northwich.
