The county town of Shropshire underwent great changes during the 1950s and 1960s, when the council’s watchword was "down with the old and up with the new." This book contains more than 180 images of Shrewsbury from that time, revealing the transformation of the town center, the demolition of the slum dwellings in the suburbs in which families had lived for generations, and the development of the outer suburbs. With images from the local press, some fine aerial shots taken by a local land agent, and material from an avid collector of Shrewsbury ephemera, it offers a nostalgic look at the town as it developed and modernized after World War Ii, and a fascinating glimpse of an age when acts such as Doris Day and the Beatles topped the charts, and the traffic wardens in Shrewsbury wore miniskirts.
