The smelting of the first iron in Scunthorpe in 1864 from local ironstone resulted in the development of an iron and steel industry and rapid population growth. The town is perhaps best-known for its steel industry but, despite its youth, it has a surprisingly rich and varied past. This fascinating selection of over 220 archive photographs drawn from the archive of North Lincolnshire Museum, the majority of which have never been published before, traces some of the architectural, industrial and social changes which have taken place here over the last century. All aspects of everyday life are also recorded, from shops and businesses, churches and schools, to images of work and leisure, day trips and days of. Life in some of the surrounding villages is also featured, including Burton-upon-Stather, Burringham, Keadby, Messingham, Normanby and Winterton. This volume will appeal to everyone interested in the history of Scunthorpe and the surrounding area.
