About the Book

A Note on the Photographs in the Book

Photographs have a special role to play in bringing history to life. Tickhill and District Local History Society owes a great debt of gratitude to the numerous people who have lent us their photographs to use, to share with others, and to add to our under-standing of years gone by and how people lived in those times.

Photographs are also things of beauty in their own right and it has been a particular pleasure to try to restore them to their original condition, undoing the ravages of time, so that their wonderful qualities can shine through once again.
