June and Vernon Bull take us on a tour of Peterborough 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. 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 cathedral and the town hall have remained unchallenged and unchanged.
June and Vernon Bull are keen local historians and are founder members of the Peterborough Local History Society - June is the Hon. Secretary. They are also enthusiastic collectors of old postcards of Peterborough and have amassed a collection of nearly 3,500 originals from the late Victorian period to the early 1960s. Since 1988 they have published a series of Peterborough picture postcard books, as well as other local history titles. They're happy to give illustrated talks about old Peterborough.
