about this item

In 1897, Nottingham was granted a City Charter. This was to coincide with the celebrations accompanying Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. By 1897 Nottingham already had a history going back to at least the 9th century when the settlement was refereed to as Tigguocobauc, which literally translates as the 'House of Caves'. The Victorian era saw great changes to Nottingham. Rapid growth in population meant great changes to the town. Once known as the Garden Town, Nottingham quickly saw an urban transformation in areas such as housing, industry and transport. Much of Nottingham's heritage was lost to make way for progress, even more so with the Enclosure Act of 1845. This book, through photographs, postcards, documents and other images will reflect the transformation Nottingham has seen from a beautiful Garden Town to one of the country's leading cities. Not only can we see architectural development, but the social impact brought about by these changes. This work will not just record the historical change through Victorian photographs, but will also show the changes since the Victorian era through contemporary images.
