From Tombland to Carrow Road, Frank Meeres takes us on a tour of Norwich through the ages, explaining the history behind the well-known landmarks of this fine city. Photographs illustrate shops, schools, garages, churches, houses and street scenes; some that are instantly recognisable, and others that are lost forever. As you follow this trail, you will notice the increase in the number of vehicles on the road; shops that once sold new goods are now estate agents or charity shops; green fields have been transformed into industrial estates, houses or ring roads; however, some beloved features such as the Provisions Market, the Guildhall and St Peter Mancroft have remained unchallenged and unchanged.
Frank Meeres is a well-known local author. He has worked for many years at the Norfolk Record Office and is a prominent local historian. Norfolk was a hotbed of suffragette activity, and this motivated Frank to explore the history of the movement on a national level. He lives in Norwich.
