A Place in History
Britain's Headline News Stories Remembered
Through archival and modern photographs, this book revisits the scenes of headline-grabbing events from 20th-century British history. Disasters such as the Crystal Palace fire of 1936 are commemorated, alongside the sporting triumph of Roger Bannister’s four-minute mile in Oxford and Liverpool’s cultural landmark – the Cavern Club. Comparing the appearance of these places then and now provides a pictorial record of the far-reaching social and economic changes that Britain has experienced.
