Summary

The discovery of iron ore in Scunthorpe in 1859 resulted in the development of an iron and steel industry and rapid population growth. The town is perhaps best-known for its steel industry but, despite its youth, it has a surprisingly rich and varied past. This fascinating collection of 180 archive photographs drawn from the archive of North Lincolnshire Museum, the majority of which have never been published before, traces some of the architectural, industrial and social changes which have taken place here over the last century. All aspects of everyday life are also recorded, from shops and businesses, churches and schools, to images of work and leisure, day trips and days off. Life in some of the surrounding villages is also featured, including Burton-upon-Stather, Flixborugh, Gunness, Messingham, Normanby and Winterton. This volume will appeal to everyone interested in the history of Scunthorpe and the surrounding area.
