Containing a unique selection of removable memorabilia, intricately reproduced in facsimile form, and hundreds of rarely seen archive photographs, this sumptuous album provides an amazing record of over 45 years of life on Britain's most famous street. House by house, and also calling in at the Factory, the Rovers, the Kabin and the Corner Shop, we discover all sorts of fascinating lost treasures, from birth certificates, invitations, love letters and court summonses to divorce papers, old pub menus, football-pools forms, newspaper cuttings, clocking-in cards from the factory, ads from the shop window and much more. Coronation Street historian Tim Randall threads it all together to paint a vivid and evocative history of each premises on the street, piecing together the stories of the generations that have passed through from the evidence they've left behind.This album includes: photograph folder with 10 photographs; estate agent's details for the Rovers Return; Richard Hillman's confession; 'Free the Weatherfield One' flyer; invitation to Liz and Vernon's wedding; Hayley Cropper's change of name deed; Vera's Husband of the Year entry form; Sarah Platt's ultrasound; Elsie's poison pen letter; Rovers Return food review clipping from Weatherfield Recorder; Rita's Capricorn Club poster; Derek's Ransom note for his gnomes; Street Cars card/receipt; Katy Harris' confession; Tracy's adoption certificate; Kevin and Sally's divorce letter; Janice Battersby's clocking on time card; Stan Ogden's Pools form; and Vote Alf Roberts flyer.
