Lost King's Lynn brings the past back to life
Town historian Dr Paul Richards today has another book about the heritage of the town published.
Lost King's Lynn is a fully illustrated description of Lynn's well known and lesser known paces that have been lost over the years.
The 96-page book presents a portrait of a town and a way of life that has radically changed or disappeared, showing not just the industries that have gone but people, streets and places of entertainment.
Dr Richards says in his foreward to the book that the town has been reshaped over the past 150 years and that "for better and for worse" these changes are highlighted in the six chapters.
He starts with the Lost North End, so dear to the author's heart and goes on to consider Riverside Taverns, the High Street and shops, Norfolk Street and Town Yards, Fleets and Rivers and A Town in Transition, which considers the impact of the London overspill agreement with the GLC in 1962.
