Robin Hoods Bay and Fylingthorpe Through Time by Robin Lidster

Robin Hoods Bay and Fylingthorpe Through Time

Part of the Through Time Series


Robin Hoods Bay and Fylingthorpe Through Time by Robin Lidster

Robin Hood's Bay and Fylingthorpe 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 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 the area all their lives, or whether they are just visiting for the first time. Robin Hood's Bay and Fylingthorpe Through Time also shows how photography has continually evolved to keep up with an ever changing society.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.
