Market Harborough and the Local Villages offers a captivating glimpse into the history of Market Harborough and the villages surrounding it through an eclectic collection of photographs. It presents the reader with an insight into the past and present life of the area. Although views of thriving High Streets, vanished buildings and well-known houses are included, the emphasis throughout is on the people who were born, or settled, here. Browsing through the photographs you will notice the increase in the number of vehicles on the road and changes to road layouts. Shops have not only changed ownership but also the goods that they sell or are perhaps now estate agents or charity shops. Many poignant memories are given a new lease of life, offering a trip down memory lane for some; for others this charming book will be a voyage of discovery.
