This fascinating collection of over 200 old photographs of Ely shows the changing life in the city and nearby villages over a period of more than one hundred years. Through the eyes of photographers we glimpse life in the high streets and back streets, in cathedral and chapel, in palace and workhouse. We see life from the river, along a route of great importance to the city, and from the settlements which cluster on the island of Ely. People are an important part of the book and they are shown at work and at play. Some well known traders are featured including J Cutlack, ironmongers, Fisher's, jewellers and Nice's Garage. Some of Ely's best known individuals are also featured including Marshall Fisher, founder of the museum, Tom Bolton, photographer, Mr Bonnett, the baker in Broad Street and John Beckett, solicitor. Everywhere, be it in the foreground or background, visible or unseen, is the presence of the cathedral, dominating the landscape and city life as it has done for nearly a thousand years. This book offers an interesting view of the development of a place of charm and distinction and will be enjoyed by all who know and love this popular Cambridgeshire town
