Grantham The War Years (1939-1945)

£14.99

Product description

A pictorial insight. Front cover shows a colour photograph of the war memorial taken just after the Remembrance Sunday church service and parade on 11 November 1990.

According to the Imperial war Museum the town of Grantham has something of its history not possessed by most other towns of comparable size, namely a pictorial diary of its life throughout the whole of the 2nd world war. This is entirely due to a local businessman whose business was photography.

Walter Lee, a Grantham man born in the town in 1891, educated in the town and who set up his photographic business n the town. How he obtained his film to take his superb photographs throughout the war is not known although he was the 'official' photographer for several organisation, e.g. security, passbooks and identity cards for the local munition factories.

However, the local historians of the town have since benefited from Walter Lee's foresight and these wonderful photographs are now available to the public in a way never before achieved.

The author has used the photographs, together with his own research, to show how Grantham got on with its life despite and because of a world war on its doorstep; they show how the town battled, damaged but determined, to so its bit which, with hindsight, was quite a considerable bit.

There is some sticker damage on the back cover and the front cover is bent all the way down the spine but, otherwise this book is in good condition.
