Welcome

This blog is about my interests in history and photography. I have always enjoyed discovering something new about the past, and there is always much to discover.

I am always pleased to chat about the subjects covered in my books and to hear about new historical research projects which I may be able to help you with.

I can also present illustrated talks to local history and heritage societies on a variety of subjects, some quite obscure, and I have my own audio-visual equipment.

If you would like to chat about a book, project, visit or idea, in the first instance, please contact me by email here.

A-Z of Leicester in the news!

BooksPosted by Stephen Thu, June 29, 2017 06:03:53
Very many thanks to Mr Leicester for his kind review of my A-Z of Leicester which appeared in the Leicester Mercury recently. Mr Leicester highlights the Il Rondo nigtclub (my only entry under I) and mentions several other entries including Gary Lineker and the Liberty Statue.



There is, of course, a further connection between these two entries other than both being under 'L'. For many decades, Leicester City fans would salute the statue on their way to and from Filbert Street; and last year, when Leicester City won the premiership, the statue was adorned with all things blue.

This is my photograph of the statue on the day it was unveiled in its present location. You can read Mr Leicester's review here.
