The Shropshire market town of Shrewsbury, lying on the River Severn, was an important center of the wool trade in medieval England and its prosperity continued up until the Industrial Revolution, with a wealth of ancient and historical buildings still standing in the town center. Although Shrewsbury was not heavily industrialized, it was the home of the railway locomotive and lorry manufacturer Sentinel. Shrewsbury avoided the wholesale rebuilding in the decades after World War 2 that was visited on many of Britain’s towns and cities but life in the town has still significantly changed over the decades, with the rise of new retail developments and the evolution of work and leisure. Lost Shrewsbury presents a portrait of a town and a way of life that has radically changed or disappeared today, showing not just the industries and buildings that have gone, people and street scenes, but also many popular places of entertainment and much more. This fascinating photographic history of lost Shrewsbury will appeal to all those who live in the town or know it well, as well as those who remember it from previous decades.
David Trumper is one of Shropshire's best-known authors and historians and has published many books on different facets of the county's history.
