Memory Lane Crewe

Gordon Davies

Memory Lane Crewe is the result of many hundreds of hours work, trawling through the archives by former Crewe Chronicle staff photographer Gordon Davies. A native of Crewe, with an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the town’s history, both ancient and recent, Gordon has amassed some 500 images of the Crewe area, covering people and places, wartime,schools, clubs,pubs,shops and the railway and other industry.

There are the streets of Crewe as they looked 30,40 50 years ago and more. Faces stare out from the past: schoolchildren, many now middle-aged; and teenagers, now drawing their pension in this new century.

The result is a book which will delight Crewe people of all ages as they see places and people they remember from the past. Memory Lane Crewe will inform and entertain. Most of all it will bring back memories of days gone by.
