Beginning in the 1700s, water from the Tookany Creek powered mills throughout what became Cheltenham Township. Following the coming of the railroad in 1855 and the end of the Civil War, many of the wealthy in Philadelphia moved to the area to establish summer homes and, later, permanent residences. Home to early abolitionist Lucretia Mott and Camp William Penn, the nation's largest training ground for black Union troops, Cheltenham Township today remains a diverse community with a rich history. Cheltenham Township is the first comprehensive photographic history of this Philadelphia suburb. From the early days of mill towns along the Tookany Creek to the vast estates built by the fabulously wealthy at the end of the nineteenth century, Cheltenham Township captures all the towns and villages that comprise the township. The histories of Wyncote, Cheltenham Village, Elkins Park, Glenside, Melrose Park, and LaMott are brought into focus with many rare and unpublished photographs. Pictured are the early homes of Richard Wall and Toby Leech and the later mansions of the Widener, Elkins, Stetson, and Cooke families, as well as the fire companies, businesses, schools, people, and institutions that define the history of Cheltenham Township.

The Cheltenham Festival is nowadays the biggest event in the racing year – in visitor numbers eclipsing Royal Ascot, the Grand National or the Derby. In 2011 it is a hundred years since the 1911 running of the National Hunt Chase marked the birth of the Festival, providing the perfect occasion for Robin Oakley’s new history. This is a work of both history and celebration – telling the story of how three days of jump racing beneath Cleeve Hill in Cheltenham became a vast sporting event attracting an average of 50,000 spectators per day. Before the War it saw legendary horses like Golden Miller; after the War the Irish invasion began – both horses and spectators; in the Sixties, Arkle, the greatest jumps horse of all time duelling with Mill House in the Gold Cup. In recent years there have been Cheltenham favourites like Desert Orchid, winning a gruelling Gold Cup in the mud, Dawn Run, Best Mate (2 Gold Cups), hurdlers like Istabraq and Persian War, and the grey hero One Man. But also it is a story of the craic and the characters, like the Irishman who won enough on Istabraq to pay off his mortgage, then lost it again on the Champion Chase, and reflected, “Ach, it was only a small house anyway…” This is a book for both the committed Festival-goer, Guinness in hand, and every armchair racing fan.

In 1840 the Birmingham & Gloucester Railway commenced operation, giving an important outlet to the trade and industry of the West Midlands through Gloucester Docks. The Birmingham & Gloucester became absorbed into the Midland Railway during the 1840s. The line's most famous feature is the Lickey Incline from Bromsgrove to Blackwell. This book traces the history, mainly during the steam era, of the route from Birmingham to Cheltenham, both the original 'Old Road' through Spetchley and the loop through Worcester. It became a vital and busy artery of the Midland Railway, later the LMS and BR. Informative captions enhance the pictures, which are not just of trains and locomotives but also cover stations, signal boxes, freight yards and tunnels, the whole giving a good account of the line's fortunes over the years. This title will be in two parts - the second part will look at the Cheltenham to Bristol section. Together the books give an unrivalled comprehensive photographic coverage of steam days on this very important cross-countryroute.
