Trentham was built round its mediaeval priory and the estate of the Dukes of Sutherland and although it is now part of the Stoke-on-Trent conurbation, joining the Federation in 1922, it has still retained its individual character. The town is bordered by the River Trent and the Trent & Mersey Canal as well as the open space of Trentham Gardens, built on the old ducal estate. The Sutherland family mausoleum is still a landmark in the area, and the town today is a bustling and affluent Potteries suburb.
Trentham Reflections features an exciting collection of historic and modern pictures that are individually merged to reveal how the area has changed over the decades. Each of the 180 pictures in this book combines a recent colour view of Trentham with the matching sepia archive scene. Through the split-image effect, readers can see how streets, buildings, the docks and everyday life have transformed with the passing of time. Local author Alan Myatt presents this fascinating visual chronicle that ingeniously reflects past and present glimpses of Trentham.
This book will be of interest to residents, visitors, local historians and all those with links to the area.
