Chorley & District in Old Photographs

Located on the eastern edge of the Lancashire plain on the banks of the River Chor, at the centre of a rich agricultural area, Chorley was a market town from medieval times. This beautifully presented book depicts the growth and prosperity which arose with the Industrial Revolution, through juxtaposing images of streets, buildings and people. The photographs feature aspects of industry such as cotton weaving and spinning; coal mining and quarrying; and, canal and railway links. Images showing the physical development are accompanied by changes in costume and custom, transport and trading, sport and entertainment. Informative captions will help the reader understand how all this contributed to the rich history of Chorley.
