Cambridge University in Old Photographs is a photographic record of the ancient institution, its people and its traditions. This selection of photographs, chosen from the extensive collection of Cambridge City Library, and the author's informative captions detail diverse aspects of University life, from lectures to the bumps races, and from laboratories to May Balls. Of particular interest are the photographs that chronicle specific events in the University's history: the admittance of women to degrees, royal visits, notable honorary degrees, riots and student pranks. Helen Callaghan has brought together a superb collection of over 200 photographs which together present a fascinating illustrated account of University life from the nineteenth century to the present day.
