Om boka

As the nineteenth century progressed, shorter working weeks brought more leisure time and improved opportunities to promote and take part in sport and entertainment. By 1900 two professional football teams had become established in the league, Edgbaston had become the home of Warwickshire County Cricket Club, and ball games such as rugby, hockey, netball and tennis flourished. Birchfield Harriers regularly showed a clean pair of heels to clubs near and far. Gymnastics and swimming also became very popular. During the first three decades of the twentieth century music halls, theatres and the cinema attracted impressive numbers of patrons. All of these enjoyable activities are described in this book with over 200 photographs, postcards and other wonderful memorabilia. Coronations are also featured and the week-long city-wide pageant in 1938. Look out for the small boy who surely put the 'imp' into 'impudence'!
