Containing previously unpublished memorabilia, intricately reproduced on the page, plus hundreds of rarely seen archive photographs, this unique album provides an amazing record of nearly 60 years of life on Britain's most famous street.

From the Rovers Return, the Factory, Roy's Rolls, The Kabin and the Corner Shop, as well as the other houses in the Street, in this book you'll find all sorts of lost treasures from the world of Coronation Street, from revealing birth certificates and love letters to divorce papers, personal letters and even Betty's secret hotpot recipe.

Coronation Street historians Tim Randall and Simon Timblick thread it all together to paint a vivid and evocative history of each of the premises on the Street, piecing together the stories of the generations that have passed through from the evidence they've left behind.
