' lavishly illustrated with his marvellously atmospheric images that its text could almost be described as one long picture caption.' (The Independent, April 2011). ' His [Peter's] many anecdotes help to enrich a book which is a happy blend of both familiar and unfamiliar, past and present.' (Leicester Mercury, April 2011).
