Grantham the War Years

Malcolm G Knapp Heritage Trust of Lincolnshire

According to the Imperial War Museum the town of Grantham has something of its history not possessed by most other towns of comparable size, namely a pictorial diary of its life throughout the whole of the Second World War. This is entirely due to a local businessman who business was photography. Walter Lee, born in Grantham in 1891, educated and set up his photographic business in the town, kept a meticulous diary of the war and its effects on the town. These wonderful photographs are now available to the public in a way never before achieved.

Author, Malcolm Knapp has used the photographs, together with his own research, to show how Grantham got on with its life despite and because of the world war on its doorstep. They show how the town battled, damaged but determined, to do its quite considerable bit.
