Synopsis

In the August of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee year a Charter conferring the dignified title of City upon the town of Nottingham was signed. In 1997 the City of Nottingham celebrated its one hundredth anniversary. A Centenary, especially one occurring towards the end of a millenium, is a time for reflection, and the photographs in this enthralling collection are a review of the dramatic changes the city has undergone in the course of a century.

The formally predominant lace industry has declined, the Exchange has been replaces by the Council House, the Victoria Railway Station as come and gone (with the exception of its clock tower), slum properties have been cleared, the River Trent has been tamed and diverted, and the Clifton Bridge has been built. Two world wars have left their mark on the city, social revolutions have changed forever the ways in which we educate and amuse ourselves, and modern tastes have consigned to history the fashions of our forebears.

Remote and yet familiar, the historic Nottingham which comes to life in these pages will be remembered by many but will fascinate a great many more. Much that was of value has been lost but Nottingham has prospered, and the justifiable pride which modern citizens take in it will be enhanced by this selection of the best of the city's past.
