"Nottingham - Picture the Past" is a unique insight into the use of photography in the illustrious history of one of England's finest cities with exquisite high-quality images of Nottingham throughout the 19th and 20th century.

The images are accompanied by detailed historical captions that set the photographs in their proper context and tell the stories of the people, buildings, streets and events of the past.

Readers can also see how photographic techniques developed over the years, and how the actual photographs were used: the rich and fashionable would proudly display their personal photographs and artists embraced the new medium.

The unrivalled collection of illustrations held by Nottinghamshire County Council has long been recognised as an indispensable record of the past.

In this new book a fresh selection of images is displayed to best advantage, and the carefully compiled captions provide essential reading.
