Plymouth Before the War (Chris Robinson)

Plymouth before the war is a delightful visual exploration of a city that was much enjoyed by generations of Plymothians born before the Second World War.
Featuring archive footage and stills garnered together from a variety of sources including the City Museum and Art Gallery, the Central Library, the Western Morning News, and the Herald, it includes thrilling clips of Derry’s Clock, the old Drake Circus, Bedford Street, the Guildhall square, Mutley Plain, Wolseley Road, Stonehouse, Ker Street, the Hoe and the Barbican.
This street by street guide lovingly recaptures the old city and provides a true treasure for anyone old enough to remember it and an indispensable key for anyone keen to unlock the world as it was known to their parents or grandparents.
