Crawley: Then & Now – Paperback


In stock


By Roger Bastable

Designated as one of post-war Britain’s ‘Mark I’ New Towns in January 1947, Crawley has occupied an important position in the continuing progress and development of West Sussex. This fascinating volume illustrates some of the enormous changes within living memory to streets, shops and schools, and also looks back at the town’s long history.
Highlighting some wonderful comparisons, this unique collection of over eighty-five pairs of images, many previously unpublished, takes a nostalgic look at many aspects of life, including sporting events and local industry, as they used to be, alongside the changes that have taken place.
