A Bobby's Job, Images of Policing in Cheshire

A Bobby's Job is a beautiful collection of black and white photographs from the extensive archives held at the Museum of Policing in Cheshire. This book delves into the history and development of policing in the Cheshire area; from the formation of the county's first police forces in the early nineteenth century, through the Victorian and Edwardian period, the interwar years and into the second half of the twentieth century when policing underwent fundamental change. Police buildings, transport, police dogs and many other aspects are dealt with here. A well-researched and truly delightful book that will appeal to all those interested in policing and local history.
