In and Around Rotherham Summary

In and Around Rotherham: From the Scrivens Collection by Peter Tuffrey

Through a comprehensive collection of over 200 old photographs, all taken by South Yorkshire-based photographer Edgar Leonard Scrivens, we have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of Rotherham as it was in days gone by. The photographs give a fascinating view of both Rotherham and many of the surrounding villages including Wentworth, Anston, Bramley and Dinnington. A variety of aspects of community life are covered from work and leisure to the houses, churches, schools and business premises that represented the physical form of the community. Many well-known landmarks of the community have been recorded including College Square, Clifton Park and the Chapel on the Bridge. For all those who have lived in and around Rotherham for many years, this book will provide a nostalgic stroll down memory lane, while for newer residents it serves as an excellent means of discovering more about the community's history. Like Scrivens' images, well-known local author Peter Tuffrey provides in this book an irresistible and invaluable record of the Rotherham area.
