The Changing Face of Grantham

In association with the Grantham Journal

The Changing Face of Grantham is a fascinating account of the places, events and people that have shaped the history of the town over the last 100 years. Over 300 photographs provide a graphic record of the generations who have lived and worked here, and they also show streets and thoroughfares, houses and public buildings, shops and factories that have vanished or been altered almost beyond recognition.

Published to mark the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Grantham Journal, the book uses the newspaper’s unrivalled collection of photographs to tell the story of the town and its people. Most aspects of Grantham’s daily life in the past are recalled – hospitals and schools, work and sports, shopping and church-going. Extraordinary episodes are remembered, as well as remarkable individuals who contributed so much to the tradition of the town. The photographs, and John Pinchbeck’s expert commentary, give a unique insight into the town’s ongoing history as it was seen through the eyes of the Grantham Journal all those years ago.
