Towns of Two Halves extracts:
● “It’s not quite the Aurora Borealis, but something magical happens in Lincoln Cathedral on a bright, sharp December afternoon.”
● “The Lincoln engineering firm of William Foster & Co was responsible for the first military tanks. The early machines were referred to obliquely in terms that might conceal their purpose. The Lincoln prototypes were called ‘water carriers’ supposedly destined for service in Mesopotamia; workers referred to them as ‘water tanks’ and, later, simply ‘tanks’.”
● “On a warmer day in Lincoln, you might head for the Brayford Pool area in the lower part of town, or Lincoln Arboretum, a short distance east of the city centre. Or you might just wander around, enjoying the feel of the place”
