Leicester books: History & Heritage

Images of Leicester (Images Of...)
Images of Leicester (Images Of...)

This title is a paperback reprint - back due to popular demand. It covers over 400 captivating photographs chronicling Leicester throughout the 20th Century. It captures a fascinating glimpse of the city, its culture, events and people in a century of great change. Throughout the last century, photographers of the Leicester Mercury have been faithfully recording life in Leicester to produce a precious archive of the changing face of the city. The original narrow roadways leading out of Leicester have become dual-carriageways, the horse-drawn vehicles have disappeared from our streets, the trams have come and gone, and whole areas have been redeveloped as greenfields have become new estates. Indeed, Leicester itself has extended to encompass the villages of Aylestone, Knighton, Evington, Belgrave and Humberstone.

Price: £12.99

Publication: October 2004
