Warrington is a new town with a long history but throughout it has remained an important commercial centre and a vital nodal point on the national communications network. Warrington Through Time traces a town in transition: from its traditional Lancashire roots to part of twenty-first century Cheshire and from the impact of common national trends to factors which have shaped its distinct local character. This fascinating portrait of a changing town has been captured by the town's professional and amateur photographers from the infancy of the media in the 1850s. Official photographic documentation; photo journalism, picture postcards and even informal snapshots bring this vanished world back to life in contrast with today's familiar townscape.
