Britain: Yesterday and Today looks at many aspects of British life over the last 150 years, contrasting beautiful black and white images with colour photographs from the twenty-first century of the same scenes and activities. This is full of fantastic images from Britain's past.

From sport and leisure to the workplace, from the countryside to the city and from shore to shore, witness the amazing changes that have taken place in British society over the last century-and-a-half, as well as those things that have reassuringly remained the same. Marvel at the beauty of our untouched countryside, discover our power stations transformed into museums and our docks into modern commercial enterprises, as well as witnessing the mistakes that have been made in the name of progress. See how our patterns of work have changed as well as how Britons choose to spend their free time. Britain: Yesterday and Today combines illuminating and informative text with 250 fascinating black and white and colour photographs to provide a unique window on Britain's past and present.

Janice Anderson has written books on a number of subjects including travel, cinema, art and social history. She lives in Marlow, Buckinghamshire.
