This is a fascinating collection of many unpublished photographs showing Crewe's development during the twentieth century. Illustrated with well over 200 old photographs and images, it traces changes and development, and highlights the architectural wealth of the town from a number of different periods.
The book features many different aspects, from the building of the magnificent Municipal Buildings to the changes on the Market Square. The effects of two world wars upon Crewe and its revival afterwards is also documented.
Crewe has for many years created the industrial wealth for this part of South Cheshire. That affluence is shown admirably during the twentieth century by its constant endeavour to improve its residents' lifestyle. The book will show to great effect how their living standards improved during this period.
