A reprint of Colin Tooke's Yarmouth title, long unavailable. Featuring archive Photographs series and images to showing the history of Great Yarmouth, through their streets, shops, pubs, and people.

The Great Yarmouth Rows, referred to as a ‘gridiron’ by Charles Dickens, formed a unique street pattern in the medieval town and survived largely intact until the Second World War.
Originally known by names which reflected the characters who lived there and the public houses that adjoined them, the Rows were home to the majority of the town’s inhabitants, from the rich merchants and tradesmen to the ordinary working classes. Numbers replaced names in the 19th century but the Rows still formed the heart of the town.
This book, essential reading for all those researching their family history, lists almost six hundred names, the numbers and the location of the 145 Rows which made up the Old Town. A brief description of each Row is included, as well as the adjacent streets and quayside.
The photographs show what many of the Rows looked like at the turn of the 20th century as well as many of the public houses and other buildings to be found in the Old Town.
For those who lived and worked in the Rows this book will bring back many memories and for younger generations it vividly portrays a way of life which now has gone for ever.
