Description

Over the centuries Worcester has transformed itself from a small Roman town in the first century AD, trading mostly in salt from the river, into the large and busy modern town it is today. The 'Faithful City' has, however, largely remained true to its roots. The photographs in this book form a fascinating collection illustrating just how much has changed - and how much has stayed the same. Among the distinctive views seen in this history of Worcester's streets are the eleventh-century cathedral, the medieval buildings of Lich Street, and The Foregate, home to Worcester's Hop Market.show more
