'Memory Lane Ely and the Fens' is a unique record of the life of the people who, for the last 40 years, have lived in the shadow of the Cathedral. Combining photographs taken by Cambridge Evening News photographers most of which have never been published before - and some of the stories carried in the newspaper at the time, it is sure to jog memory after memory. It captures many of the changes - the shops and schools that have closed, the people who served and taught, the characters and events that you thought you had forgotten. And if you do not see yourself in this book, you may see your mother or your daughter - or somebody you perhaps know only by sight. It's that kind of book. Mike Petty MBE, fenland historian, researcher and lecturer, has trawled through the archives of the Cambridge Evening News to select this remarkable series of photographs of the area in which he has always lived, proving that although fen land may be flat, it is always fascinating.
