Booklet published by the Survey of Lincoln, 64 pages. A5 size booklet (N6507)
From the rear side cover: This volume in the Survey of Lincoln neighbourhood series examines an area of the city closely associated with the southern High Street, bounded ar the north by High Bridge and at rhe sourh by South Park. The area covered extends west to the River Witham, as it runs parallel to the High Street, and to the east by Sincil Dyke.
TI,e work focuses upon the buildings and structures within the neighbourhood, ranging across time from the Roman period to the larer twentieth century. As this volume makes clear, this part of the city has played a viral part in accommodating its workers over time. Employment has been provided in a variety of occupations, in mills, workshops, retail and wholesale businesses and railway-related activities. Large quantities of workers' housing is also in evidence and the district's schools, places of worship and associated buildings are all examined here. Together, the various chapters reveal how an exploration of the neighbourhood's buildings and structures can shed light on the social, economic and cultural lives of its inhabitants.
