Lichfield is one of England's lesser-known cities, despite its beautiful triple-spired thirteenth-century cathedral and being the birthplace of Dr Samuel Johnson. Even with a growth in population from 7,000 to 30,000 in the 1990s, the city's old buildings, customs and traditions have been jealously guarded. Over two hundred well-chosen photographs from a wide variety of sources build up a vivid visual impression of a period at once familiar and remote. Views of Lichfield's streets and buildings over the last 140 years are juxtaposed with images of its people to create a fascinating record, not only of the physical development of the city, but also the changes in costume and custom, transport and trading, sport and entertainment. This book will evoke nostalgic memories for many, and will give pleasure to everyone who loves Lichfield.
