Description

This fascinating collection of around 200 old photographs portrays the history of the town and the people of Sudbury from the mid-nineteenth century to the 1960s. At the beginning of this period, Sudbury was a small town of fewer than 6,000 people, subsisting mainly on argiculture; by the 1960s it had trebled in size, with much of the open agricultural land being built over. The first five chapters examine each area of Sudbury in turn, centring on a major thoroughfare in each case. The second half of the book looks at a number of important aspects of life in the town, including celebrations, leisure, sport and schooldays. The pictures for this compilation have come from the extensive collection of Mr H. Griffiths, from the Sudbury Museum Trust's archives and from the author's personal files. They have been painstakingly accumulated from local people who have donated them, and the majority have never been published before. This intriguing and informative book will doubtless appeal to all residents of Sudbury. Those with a nostalgic longing for a world long disappeared will be able to reminisce as they read its pages, while newcomers will find an invaluable guide to the recent history of the town.
