Old Norwich: A Photographic Journey presents a number of old images, in both black and white and colour, depicting Norwich in a bygone era. From houses to businesses, to public houses, to people, including a dancing bear in Earlham Road and a rare picture of Town Crier Mr Childerhouse taken in the Victorian era, each photograph and postcard provides a glimpse into what Norwich used to be in the first half of the twentieth century and earlier. Michael Chandler guides the reader through the streets of old Norwich, pointing out the interesting historical facts connected with each snapshot of the past. These photographs will prove a valuable treat to those interested in Norwich's past.
