Norwich Street by Street is a fresh look at the history of Norwich that uses the streets of the old city as its starting point. If you've ever wondered how the streets of the old city got their names, and how they grew up and developed over the years, then you will find that information here, along with countless other fascinating details about the businesses and people that shaped the life of the city, the dramatic events that took place on Norwich's streets throughout history, and the many attractive and interesting buildings that line the highways and byways of the streets within the Inner Ring Road. By trawling through old directories, old copies of newspapers and library archives, Pamela Brooks has uncovered a wealth of detail about Norwich's past that will make essential reading for anyone with an interest in local history. Her lively and readable approach to the material mean that the book is sure to be popular, and it is beautifully illustrated with images from the council's archives and more modern scenes.

The book was top of Jarrolds' 'local books' chart in the Eastern Daily Press on 29 April 2006, the week it was released.

 


Reviews

From Norwich HEART (www.heritagecity.org) in their Winter Newsletter (2006)

The first useful or reliable attempt to take on this monumental task since the extremely entertaining City of Centuries by George Nobbs, published more than three decades ago... represents a pretty thoroughly researched piece of local study by a committed local heritage enthusiast.

From Norwich Evening News

A must for anyone interested in local history... a compelling tour of Norwich... peppered with fascinating tales and illustrations, ancient and modern.
