Until about 1800 Leamington Priors was a tiny village. Once it was discovered that mineral springs in the area had health benefits a new town developed - with pump rooms, an assembly room, grand terraces and a gracious atmosphere. For fifty years or so Leamington Spa attracted the great and the good, but the town's fortunes declined as 'taking the waters' fell out of favour. John Burton's new book, which draws on the photographic collections of the Warwickshire Record Office, focuses on Leamington during the twentieth century, especially the '50s and '60s - when the town was very different to the thriving spa that it had been in its nineteenth-century heyday
