"The Scottish artist John Knox Ferguson made 25 pencil sketches of parts of Kidderminster between 1892 and 1894. They were published as a portfolio in 1894 by the Carpet manufacturer Peter Adam.

In the present book the drawings are shown as gray-scale reproductions together, where possible, with comparative photographs taken close to the 1890s and also photographs of the locations as they appear day. There were other works by Knox Ferguson related to Kidderminster and some of these paintings and drawings have also been included.

Descriptions of the drawings are given and set in the perspective of Kidderminster as it was in 1892-94. Appropriate biographical details of Knox Ferguson and Peter Adam are also provided."
