About this product
- DescriptionWarrington's Photographers contains fascinating images from the archives of Warrington Museum & Art Gallery. These photographs chronicle the history of the town and the changing pace of life for its residents, as well as for Britons at large. The pictures reveal the harsh realities of construction in the nineteenth century, with the building of the Manchester Ship Canal. They also cover idyllic scenes from the photographers' travels, recording the charm of Britain's seaside towns and the beauty of its rural landscape. The book also contains archive studio photography: from acrobats to blushing brides, the images reveal the width and breath of life's rich tapestry and, in doing so, blur the lines between the past and the present.
- Author BiographyJanice Hayes is the Principal Manager at Warrington Museum, where she has worked for over 30 years.
