Rotherham is a town where new buildings are replacing ones which have been there for centuries. This delightful, full-colour collection of images celebrates the Rotherham of days gone by.

Pairing rare images from the Rotherham archives with modern photographs, it reveals the enormous changes that the town has witnessed. Many of these images have not appeared in print before. They include such places as the cattle market, the public library and even images of some of the slums which have now been eradicated. Compiled by Rotherham’s own historian Margaret Drinkall, author of Rotherham Workhouse and Murder & Crime in Rotherham, this book serves as an evocative link to the past.
