This addition to the "Britain in Old Photographs" series brings together a collection of black-and-white pictures spanning the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Drawn from family albums, local collections and professional photographers, they show the way things were and how they have changed. Every photograph is captioned, providing names and dates where possible, revealing historical and anecdotal detail and giving life to the scenes and personalities captured through the camera lens. Bringing together all aspects of daily life - celebrations and disasters, work and leisure, people and buildings - the collection should inspire memories, as well as serve as an introduction to visitors.

Descrizione libro Condizione libro: New. In 1831 Edward Adcock began wholesaling his 'Melton Mowbray pork pie' in London, making use of the daily Leeds to London stagecoach to convey his pies to the city centre. In 1840 Enoch Evans set up a rival business and the fame of the pork pie began to spread. In the late 1840s, John Dickinson started making pies close to Melton Mowbray station, later leasing a shop where the Melton Mowbray pork pie is still made today. This is a record of the people and places associated with the origins, development and production of this famous foodstuff. Codice libro della libreria 2511
