Retford and the Bassetlaw Area by Peter Tuffrey
Book DescriptionIn this new collection, over 200 old photographs and postcards have been brought together to form a fascinating volume revealing the history of the region around Retford. As well as views of this historic market town, there are also pictures from the surrounding Bassetlaw areas in their rural splendour, including Scaftworth to the north, Carlton and Worksop to the west, South Leverton to the east and Bevercotes to the south. Alongside street scenes from the towns are photographs depicting the many aspects of rural life, such as hunt meets, and the farming that has traditionally been so vital to the local economy. Many of the original pictures were taken by the Doncaster-based photographer Edgar Leonard Scrivens, but others are from the unheralded and often anonymous local photographers who have done so much to preserve the history of the area.
