This book collects together 24 black and white photographs from King's Lynn taken many decades ago, together with a modern photograph showing the same scene around the time of publication, and it thus offers a fascinating insight into how streets, houses and buildings have changed over the years. The photos include Tuesday Market Place, Lynn Mart, High Street, Bentinck Street Air Raid, St James Park, Railway Station, the County Court, the Greenland Fishery, Nelson Street, West Lynn Ferry, River Nar, Alexandra Dock, the Fisher Fleet, and more.

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