About this product
- DescriptionThe nursery rhyme Ride a Cock Horse has made Banbury one of the best-kwn towns in England. It is also famed for Banbury cakes and it's Cross. Once an important wool trading centre, in 1628 the town was ravaged by fire, which destroyed many buildings, though some have survived to the present day. This superb selection of 200 photographs provides a stalgic insight into the changing history of the town over the last century. Each image is accompanied by a detailed caption, bringing the past to life and describing many aspects of life in the town, including chapters on work, industry, schools, markets, fairs and local events - including the annual carnival, College Rag, and funfair - and providing a vital record of vanished vistas and past practices. This book will appeal to everyone with an interest in the history of Banbury, and will also awaken memories of a bygone time for all who kw this part of Oxfordshire.
