Lockleaze : Britain in Old Photographs, Paperback / softback Book

Lockleaze : Britain in Old Photographs Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


This captivating book illustrating Lockleaze contains over 200 rare and, in many cases, unpublished images that explore the social history of this close-knit area of Bristol.

Compiled using residents' photographs and archive material, this collection recalls the people, places and events that have shaped Lockleaze's past. From its modest, rural beginnings, several notable organisations and projects such as the Shaftesbury Crusade, the Dings Crusaders Rugby Club and the famous passion play A Man Dies are all shown to have played a crucial role in creating the thriving community that exists today. Produced by the author of Lockleaze Schools, informative captions compliment the images to reveal the story of how the neighbourhood has developed in the post-war era.

This nostalgic reminder of the past is sure to delight anyone who has grown up or lived in Lockleaze.
