About this title


Over the past 60 years the urban landscape of Britain's major towns and cities has changed dramatically. Large-scale redevelopment has transformed the face of high streets up and down the country, resulting in numerous towering office blocks and large modern shopping centres. There has also been a vast increase in street furniture, most notably the colourful array of road signs which are now liberally sprinkled across both towns and cities. The inexorable rise of the car industry has in turn led to the growth of large retail chains whose shop fronts have been designed to be identical across the country, thus creating more uniform streetscapes. These rapid changes have made people aware both of what has been lost and also the threat to what remains of the traditional High Street. This awareness has been fostered by the availability of photographs recording the changes and by nostalgia for gentler times when each town still retained a unique character and charm. Following the success of "Bygone London", author Kevin McCormack now turns his attention to neighbouring Surrey, recording the county and its transport in the years following World War 2. Featuring over 80 bright colour illustrations, almost all unpublished, "Bygone Surrey" is certain to appeal to a wide audience including locals who remember the county the way it used to be, tourists visiting the area, and transport enthusiasts nationwide.
