Preston has a rich history that fortunately was captured on camera from its days as a cotton town. In Preston Reflections, local author Keith Johnson presents a fascinating visual chronicle, reflecting on the endeavours and achievements of bygone generations that made the university city of today.


This book shows readers glimpses of Preston past and present. There have been periods of poverty, progress and prosperity, and displays of pomp, pageantry and patriotism, all of which have left us with images to cherish. Every picture tells its own story and the images featured, which ingeniously merge historic and modern scenes in one view, reflect the changes through time in a unique and enchanting way. Each one enables you to linger in the past and compare the current view.


Viewing the old and new images uncovers layers of history perhaps forgotten yet at the root of the lives of earlier generations. This superb collection of pictures cleverly mirrors life in Preston today and in bygone times.
