The city of Lichfield in Staffordshire - known for its three-spired cathedral and its famous son, the great lexicographer Dr Samuel Johnson - has witnessed many important events in the history of the British Isles. Protective of its architecture and its customs, Lichfield nevertheless remains a modern city where old and new co-exist. Lichfield Then & Now pairs 45 carefully chosen photographs from public and private collections with 45 contemporary colour versions of the same views, providing a fascinating visual chronicle of the city's progress. Compare the old layout of Lichfield's streets - its shop-fronts, park and pools - with the Lichfield of today and see for yourself the subtle march of time, even in this most historic of places.

Lichfield Then & Now will delight all local historians and will awaken nostalgic memories for those who used to live or work here.
