Description

Old photographs allow us to relive the past a little and this excellent collection of more than 200 photographs of Blackburn will bring back memories for many. The author has chosen the earliest images of the town for the book from his own extensive collection of old picture postcards and used a selection of press photographs borrowed from the photo-archives of Wally and Howard Talbot to provide some very evocative images of Blackburn in the 1950s and 60s. Through these pages the reader has the opportunity to see again the old Blackburn, its industry, schools, churches, theatres and people, at work and play, and, perhaps most poignantly of all, old streets and buildings that were lost in the great demolition days of the 1960s. This is a timely volume that will appeal to all Blackburnians, young and old.show more
