This nostalgic compilation of interesting, full-colour photographs displays the changes that the county town of Warwick has gone through during the last century. Life before the Second World War was not always a bed of roses; slum dwellings sat forlornly beside neighbouring streets of picturesque Tudor and grand Regency buildings.

A town of many contrasts, Warwick has undergone rapid and radical developments, but has still managed to preserve its historic character. Featuring never-before-published photographs, accompanied with unique local knowledge, Warwick Then & Now will provide locals and visitors alike with a pictorial contrast of the sleepy town of yesteryear and the bustling tourist destination it is today.
