Containing over 150 illustrations, many of which are taken from the extensive galleries and archives of Lord?s itself, together with modern photography from the peerless Patrick Eagar, this follows the history of the ground from its foundation by Thomas Lord in 1787, through the twentieth century and right up to the present day.
It includes visits by royalty, the Long Room?s role as an impromptu synagogue during the Second World War, the construction of the Media Stand and countless great occasions in domestic and international cricket.
Sure to appeal to anyone who has an interest in the game, this is the story of the ground, the MCC and of cricket itself.
