Chester is well known as a Roman city once called Deva Victrix around 2,000 years ago. Over the centuries the city has seen significant change, but this has been done sympathetically for the most part and in keeping with the general antiquity of the surrounding buildings and streets.
In this sequel to his previous book Chester in the 1950s, Paul Hurley takes a fascinating look at the ten years in which the baby boomers came into their own. As the fifties faded away and the sixties style arrived, this was a decade that altered the face of the city.
