Revised and updated for a new generation, A Street Through Time is perfect for parents and children to look at together. The more you look, the more you'll see. Think of the street you live on.

You will see magnificent buildings go up and come down, new churches built on the site of ancient temples, wooden bridges destroyed and then remade in stone, and statues demolished then unearthed many years later.
