The county town of Shropshire underwent great changes in the twenty-five years between 1950 and 1975, when the council's watchword was 'down with the old and up with the new'. This book contains over 180 images of Shrewsbury from that time, from the transformation of the town centre to the demolition of the slum dwellings in the 1960s, when whole communities were uprooted. With stunning images from a local press photographer, fine aerial shots taken by a local land agent and material from an avid collector of Shrewsbury ephemera, it offers a unique look at the town as it developed and modernised after the Second World War, and a fascinating glimpse into the daily lives of its residents.
