Barrow-in-Furness Reflections (Paperback)

£15.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

The Cumbrian town of Barrow-in-Furness was transformed by industrial expansion in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries leading to it becoming a centre for ship and submarine building. Located at the tip of a peninsula, with rich and varied natural environment, the townscape is surrounded by sea, and beyond that the Lakeland hills, while the protective arms of Walney Island provide a natural channel and harbour. Nature sits alongside industry and heritage. Looking across the channel is a medieval castle on an island, a nuclear submarine dockyard, factories and gas terminals, the town and the sands of Morecambe Bay.



'Barrow-in-Furness Reflections' features a superb collection of historic and modern pictures that are individually merged to reveal how the town has changed over the decades. Each of the 180 pictures combines a recent colour view with the matching sepia archive scene. Through the merged images readers can see how streets, buildings, industries, the dockyard and aspects of everyday life have changed with the passing of time. Local author Gill Jepson presents this fascinating visual chronicle that ingeniously mirrors Barrow-in-Furness past and present.



This book will appeal to and evoke many memories for residents and all those with links to the town.
