With twelve published books under his belt, David Hindle has proved he is a well seasoned author of local and natural history. His latest book, Victorian Preston, takes the reader on a journey of how the Victorians used the types of transport available in Preston to travel to the destination of their favourite entertainment venues. This book affords a marvellous description of the various forms of entertainment available for the leisure hungry Victorians and many of the wonderful buildings that were existent in that period.
