Images of Leicester

Leicester Mercury

Across the decades, photographers from the Leicester Mercury have been faithfully recording life in the city to produce a precious archive of Leicester and its suburbs as they used to be.

Narrow roadways have become dual carriageways, horse-drawn vehicles have disappeared from the streets, the trams have come and gone, and whole areas have been redeveloped as green fields became new estates. Areas like Aylestone, Belgrave and Knighton, once separate villages, have been encompassed by the spreading city. And throughout these momentous changes, photographers have been on hand to capture the ever-changing story.

Now this wonderful record is available in a new paperback format to entrance a new generation of readers. The quality of the photographs and the reproduction will make this most enthralling pictorial view of bygone Leicester a delight for readers across the city.
