Batsford's Birmingham then and now

£8.99

Product description

Birmingham Then and Now is the latest in the long-running series that uncovers archive photos of the landmark sites of a city and re-photographs them from exactly the same viewpoint today.

Using many images from the Batsford archive the book traces the history of the city using vintage photos from the Victorian and Edwardian era, through World War II and into the 1950s and 1960s with some gloriously nostalgic vintage colour comparisons.

Many of the grand buildings of the city centre are featured, such as the Town Hall and the Bingley Hall, but also the railway stations, shops, schools, markets, factories and football grounds that make up the fabric of the city.

Sites include: Gas Street Basin, New Street Station, Snow Hill Station, Fort Dunlop, Bourneville, Birmingham University, Edgbaston cricket ground, Cannon Hill Park, Aston Hall, Villa Park, St. Andrews, Digbeth, Moseley, Lucas Factory, and Longbridge.

Oxfam Bookshop Newark

Known as 'The key to the North', Newark is positioned on the Fosse Way and the Great North Road and is a market town steeped in the history of the English Civil War.

It boasts the UK's only Civil War centre, a dramatic ruined castle on the banks of the river Trent, with a broad hidden heritage of tunnels and cellars and the Queen's Sconce earthworks.

There is a delightful market square with quirky sixteenth century buildings and the magnificent eighteenth century Town Hall. St Mary Magdalene Church's Gothic spire has a hole where a cannonball was fired in the Civil war…lots to see…lots of shops…. good connections.

Come and see us especially for History books, and all other categories of readable material for all ages. We have lots of specialist books and collectibles and we sell Music, Records and CDs/DVDs. We have lovely and humorous cards for every occasion, diaries and other Fair Trade goods. We also sell online.

Our donated stock comes from Newark and the surrounding villages and we will collect from anyone who needs us.

Our volunteer team is from many interesting backgrounds, offering a wealth of knowledge and skills.

We are proud of our 11 year old shop and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
