WHAT IS THIS BOOK ABOUT?
“The ancient Westmorland market town of Kirkby Lonsdale is set in the rolling hills of the Lune Valley, bounded by the majestic fells of Lancashire and Yorkshire. The great Victorian arbiter of taste, John Ruskin, described it as having one of the best views in England. But the town and surrounding villages have always been more than pretty places to visit.
These 200 photographs reflect the lives of local people, the shopkeepers, servants, farmworkers, teachers and pupils; the leisured life of the gentry and aristocrats in their great houses; and the social life, celebrations and sorrows of a whole community. They record the physical changes to the area, the transition from the railway to the motor car age, and the arrival of mass tourism.
This book will be admired both by the town’s residents and its many visitors. For some it will be a nostalgic trip down memory lane; for others it will be a valuable historical record dealing with the creation of the Kirkby Lonsdale we know today.”
