About this product
- DescriptionThis selection of over two hundred photographs, many previously unpublished, documents the ways of life in Ely from the 1860s to the 1960s. The history of Ely can be traced back to Saxon times, but this book focuses on the area's development during the Edwardian and Victorian period and into the twentieth century. The images depict the role of the cathedral through time as well as the industries of Ely such as agriculture, brewing, boat-building and basket-making. The pictures and their extensively researched captions reveal t only the physical development of the city (which still follows its medieval street plan), but also the changes in costume and custom, transport and trading, sport and entertainment. Including images of the neighbouring villages of Chettisham, Prickwillow, Queen Adelaide and Stuntney, this book will give pleasure to anyone interested in the memories Ely has to offer.
