Description

Shrewsbury Revisited contains over 200 previously unpublished photographs of the town from David Woodhouse's vast collection of postcards. The views show daily life in Shrewsbury during the first half of the twentieth century, before many of the town's historic and listed buildings were torn down. They also depict the hustle and bustle of a busy market town and show many family-run businesses that have long since disappeared. The book also catalogues important events such as royal visits, civic celebrations and military parades as well as the flower show and carnivals. There are also some very rare views of the River Severn that almost completely encircles the town and of life in the historic suburbs that lie on the opposite bank. The book encapsulates a period that is fast disappearing into history, when life was much harder but lived at a slower pace.
