An amazing collection of over 250 photographs by prolific North Walsham photographer Fred Mace. Fred photographed the streets, buildings and businesses of North Walsham from the 1950s to the 1980s during which time the town saw the loss of many old areas of the town such as Dog Yard, Ship Yard, Back Street, Catchpit Lane, etc. He also captured their replacements; the new roads, new buildings and a major restructuring of the way we used the town with the arrival of the bypass, Folgate Road industrial estate and many other modifications. His photographs provide a fascinating insight into the evolution of North Walsham in the mid 20th century. Professionally printed, top quality soft cover 144 page A5 book.
