Motherwell - Lanarkshire history book




£12.99 inland UK price


US$26.00 Overseas price


Using a collection of over 200 Motherwell photographs largely provided by local residents, the author Helen Moir has compiled a volume that creates a fascinating portrait of Motherwell and its social history.

These old photographs are sure to evoke strong memories for many , and reveal to the younger generation and to descendants  abroad how things used to be in Motherwell.

Well worth a read..

The reader will encounter street scenes and people that are long gone. Motherwell has often been referred to as the 'Steel Town' and this book provides a unique insight into the area's proud industrial heritage of steel, mining and weaving.

Images that are distinctly Motherwell such as  The Cross, Dalzell, Ravenscraig and Colville Steel Works, and Skelly's Garage are featured throughout the book, all supported by detailed captions.

My Mother in Lincolnshire is absolutely thrilled with the Motherwell book, a real  trip down memory lane. You have helped to make one silver-haired little old lady very happy!! Many many thanks. Lottie Woolridge, England
