Preston Remembered by Keith Johnson, Mike Hill

Preston Remembered is a fascinating collection of articles written by author and Lancashire Evening Post historian Keith Johnson.

Take a nostalgic journey into Preston’s colourful past, recalling the events that transformed this historic cotton town into a university city. Take a peep at the days of cotton mills, factories, public houses and endless rows of terraced homes that shaped the lives of many. Return to the traditions of Whitsuntide, Easter, Wakes Weeks and Christmas that continued from generation to generation. Recall the churches and chapels, the streets, parks and, of course, the people who lived and worked in Preston.

Richly illustrated with over 50 pictures, this nostalgic volume will appeal to everyone who knows this part of Lancashire.
