The last 150 years have seen great changes in Grantham and the neighbouring villages of Belton, Barrowby, Bottesford, Denton and Harlaxton, with the loss of buildings, landscapes and institutions that had previously endured for hundreds of years. With them has gone something less tangible, but in this selection of old and new photographs and other ephemera, very real: a way of life now lost forever. From archive images of the Belvoir Hounds mustering on St Peter's Hill to familiar streets where the traffic once comprised nothing more than a lone cart, this collection brings the region's past vividly to life. Including well-known vistas, everyday events and important aspects of the history of the town alongside more original images of disasters and celebrations which may not have been seen before, Grantham Through Time is sure to reawaken nostalgic memories for many, while offering others a unique glimpse of the way life used to be.
