In this book from the Through Time series around 180 pictures trace some of the many ways in which the canals and waterways of North West England - among them the Bridgewater, Ashton, Peak Forest and Manchester Ship canals - have changed over the last century. Period paintings or sepia-tinted 'then' photographs are presented alongside 'now' colour photos of the same locations, with notes on the transformations - or continuities.
