Incredible photos, released for the first time, show what life was like in late 19th and early 20th-century Britain.
More than 1,200 black and white photos are published for the first time together in the book Lost England 1870-1930.
Some of the amazing images show people dealing with the issues we still face today, including flooding in towns and cities.
Others show factory workers, some of them children, lined up and operating huge machinery.
The British labour force is particularly well documented with stunning photos showing builders working on the Manchester Ship Canal in 1889, traders at Newcastle's Bigg market in 1920 and female munitions factory workers building bombs in 1917.
