Description - Nuneaton Memories, From the Reg Bull Collection by John Burton
NUNEATON MEMORIES is sure to fascinate anyone who has grown up or lived in Nuneaton over the past fifty years. It shows the enormous changes that have taken place in the town since the Second World War, as it adapted to the needs of increasing car ownership and changes in social and economic conditions.
The photographs come from the huge collection taken by Reg Bull and deposited at the Warwickshire County Record Office after his death in 1999. Reg Bull came from a local family; in fact his grandfather founded the Nuneaton Chronicle in 1868. Reg worked for the Coal Board but from 1950 his passion was photography. He collected local pictures from other sources, and took thousands of his own.
John Burton is well known for his books and slide shows. In this, his fifth book, he has selected over 230 pictures from the Reg Bull Collection, and arranged them to show the changing face of post-war Nuneaton. He provides a commentary and interpretation of the photographs to accompany the changes recorded through the lens of Reg Bull.
