A former Peterborough teacher has just published a new book looking back at the city’s Victorian era.

Called Victorian Peterborough and Mr Mayor, author Dr Betty Chambers launched the book at a special event held in the Mayor’s Parlour at Peterborough Town Hall.

She was the guest of the current Mayor of Peterborough Councillor David Over.

The event was attended by a number of local historians.

Her book examines the record of the mayors of Peterborough during the Victorian period.
