This fascinating new volume of archive photographs covers the Whitehaven area from St Bees in the south to Parton in the north. The majority of the images have never appeared in print before, and many have come from recently discovered private collections. The book forms a tour from south to north, passing through industrial, residential, commercial and rural areas. The chemical industry and coal mines of the Preston Isle are examined in detail, as are shipbuilding and the maritime connections of the South and North Harbours. In the centre of town, many prominent landmarks are featured, including the Theatre Royal, the Howgill Street Infirmary, shops, schools and churches. This intriguing collection is sure to appeal to all who know Whitehaven and the surrounding area, both young and old. For those who remember how the town used to be, this will be a nostalgic trip down memory lane, while for the younger generation and for newcomers to the area, it will provide an informative glimpse into their region's past.
