This absorbing collection of old images traces some of the changes and developments that have taken place in Grangetown from the Victorian age through to the 1950s. Illustrated with over 200 postcards and photographs, many never before published, this volume features some of the important events that have occurred in this industrial town. It also describes the impact of the iron and steelworks, which brought housing and employment to the area, as well as the effect of war on the community. It considers aspects of everyday life, from schools and churches, public houses, shops and streets - such as a decorated Whitworth Road celebrating the coronation of King George V in 1911, and children playing in Holden Street in 1912, and nearby Eston Junction - to leisure pursuits and local townspeople.
