Local History: Ilkeston Then and Now

Local History

On the 21st May, our class went for a walk around Ilkeston, using photographs from the Victorian times to compare the buildings and scenes we see today. We looked at the way roads, building, windows and decorations have changed or remained the same. In preparation for our visitor from the history society on Thursday, we thought of questions we wanted to ask and aspects of the town that we’d like to know more about. Have a look below at some of our comparison pictures!
