Ilkeston is a small town situated on the banks of the River Erewash in Derbyshire, and it lies a couple of miles from the very western edge of the city of Nottingham, and one of the largest local employers for many decades was the vast ironworks at Stanton (later known as the Stanton and Staveley Ironworks). This book collects together black and white photographs showing the area and its people over past years....

From the introduction: The images of the Ironworks and surrounding communities included in this book have been carefully selected from many hundreds of relevant photographs in an attempt to give a balanced coverage of life in the area both at work and at play from the nineteenth century through to more recent times. The authors recognize that without the many dif­ferent photographers capturing these images this book would not have been possible...

The condition of the book is generally very good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs but is clean and bright, the spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
