First Edition; Now, for the first time, the city's leading newspaper. the Evening News, has opened up its vast photographic archive to chart the extraordinary changes which have taken place during the 20th century. In a pictorial journey down a whole host of ‘memory lanes’ the distant and no so distant past is brought vividly to life. More than 300 photographs, some of them previously unpublished, record the life of the city from the dawning of a new century to the architectural revolution which transformed the heart of Norwich in the 1960s. Images of Norwich presents revealing portraits of streets which have changed beyond recognition and offers rare glimpses into the everyday lives of ordinary people; at work and at play. It transports you back to the days when trams clanked and rattled through city streets and when the Canaries ruled the roost at The Nest. Special sections trace the story of the German blitz on Norwich during World War Two, memorable Royal occasions, the building of the City Hall and the redevelopment, 25 years later, of the city shopping centre. Nostalgic and evocative, 'Images of Norwich' is certain to strike a chord with anyone who is proud to be counted a citizen of the 'fine city' of Norwich. List of subscribers to rear of book.
