This book is a unique record of the town as seen through the lens of one man, Christopher Wilson, who in his time was considered one of Lowestoft's foremost professional photographers, but is now all but forgotten. From Wilson's arrival in the 1890s his camera recorded the town at the height of its prosperity, and covered the port, the resort and its industries, as well as the men and women who made Lowestoft what it was in the years before the Second World War. Interspersed by images collected by Wilson from fellow local photographers, many of his own photographs are taken from studio proofs and are published here for the first time. Ian Robb's knowledgeable captions and the fascinating pictures will be of interest to anyone who knows Lowestoft, residents and visitors alike.show more
