Books and Booklets

We stock a large range of pictorial and social history books by the local author, Ian Bishop. The "Around" series feature photographs from the early decades of the 20th century whilst the "Then and Now" series feature early and late 20th century photographs of the same location, illustrating the changes to buildings and streets during the intervening years.

We also stock a very authoritative series of books, written and published by Colin Chapman (our Society president), designed to raise awareness of the less often used source materials that can be useful to family historians.
