Tamworth Through Time gives a vivid insight into the dramatic developments that have taken place in the town in the recent past. Anthony Poulton-Smith's fascinating new book recalls streets, houses and public buildings, shops, businesses and pubs that have vanished or been altered almost beyond recognition. The reader is taken on a conducted tour through the past and present streets of this ancient town, and is encouraged to compare present day streetscapes with archive photographs and other ilustrations created from the same viewpoint. The resulting contrast offers an illuminating insight into the evolution of the town over the last 200 years. It will be essential reading for anyone who is interested in how the Tamworth of yesterday evolved into the town of today.
