Chichester is a city with an unbroken history that stretches back to Roman times or earlier.
Its main city streets follow the original pattern laid out almost 2,000 years ago.
The buildings that line many of those streets, when not medieval in origin, most frequently date to Georgian or Victorian times.
The changing use of these structures and the activities of their occupiers is the theme that runs through a book by Chichester Society member Philip MacDougall.
