The life and times of Hinckley over more than a century are illustrated in this fascinating collection of old photographs selected from the archives of the Hinckley Times. Young Hinckley people and recent arrivals to the town will be amazed to see familiar streets in the unfamiliar settings of days gone by and older residents will enjoy the nostalgia as they are reminded of them as they once were. Once popular items like Sunday School treats, charabanc trips and a summer's day spent at Hinckley Lido are all here to be enjoyed again. The popular Hinckley Carnival is represented, as are some of the many local football teams that existed before the war. Prepare to be surprised by a picture showing the huge number of people that turned out to see the new bandstand opened in the park in 1908!
