Housing development, more roads and a growth in immigration have all changed the shape of Britain

Farmland that has been taken over for housing development, old factories demolished to make way for improved road systems, and the construction of out-of-town shopping sites. All of these are among the ways in which major changes in land use affects the population of a region. Pictures and postcards, often assembled by local history societies or used in newspaper supplements about the past, can show what centres of population were like in times gone by; while aerial photographs can provide the ‘big picture’, to give a sense of scale and perspective.
