Shrewsbury Then & Now is a superb collection photographs of the town, compiled by local historian and well-known author David Trumper. Scenes of yesteryear are contrasted with modern colour views to show what has been lost and what remains. This book offers an insight into people’s daily lives and living conditions in the town, and the nature of the photographs and David Trumper’s informative captions show the sometimes drastic changes which have taken place in the name of progress.
Drawing on detailed local knowledge of the community and illustrated with a wealth of fascinating images, this book recalls what has changed in Shrewsbury in terms of buildings, traditions and ways of life.
