Synopsis

Thirsk & Sowerby Through Time by Cooper Harding

Thirsk & Sowerby Through Time is a unique insight into the illustrious history of this part of Yorkshire. Reproduced in full colour, this is an exciting examination of its well-known streets and famous faces, and what they meant to the people of this area throughout the 19th and into the 20th Century. Looking beyond the exquisite exterior of these well-kept photos, readers can see the historical context in which they are set, and through the author's factual captions for every picture, and carefully-selected choice of images, the reader can achieve a reliable view of the local history. There is something for everyone here, whether they have lived in Yorkshire all their lives, or whether they are just visiting the area for the first time. Thirsk & Sowerby Through Time also shows how photography has continually evolved to keep up with an ever changing society.
