Synopsis

Leicester Through Time is a unique insight into the illustrious history of this part of the country. Reproduced in full colour, this is an exciting examination of Leicester, the famous streets and the famous faces, and what they meant to the people of Leicester throughout the 19th and into the 20th Century. Looking beyond the exquisite exterior of these well-kept photos, readers can see the historical context in which they are set. Through the author's factual captions for every picture, and carefully-selected choice of images, the reader can achieve a reliable view of the city's history. Readers are invited to follow a timeline of events and watch the changing face of Leicester, as the author guides us through the city's streets. There is something for everyone here, whether they have lived in Leicester all their lives, or whether they are just visiting this vibrant city. It also shows how photography has continually evolved to keep up with an ever changing society.
