A new book has been published which gives readers a fascinating look into what the city of Plymouth would have looked like in Queen Victoria's Day.
Hundreds of photos of the city taking during the 1800s capture what was a time of massive change.
Our reporter Claire Manning has been on a tour of the city with the book's author, Chris Robinson:

The future of one of the biggest events in Bristol is in doubt after losing funding.
The St Pauls Carnival attracts huge crowds - but it's only been held twice in the past four years.
The festival is a celebration of the city's Afro-Caribbean culture, and we've taken a quick look back at its history.
Organisers insist this isn't the end - and that next year's event will go ahead, despite Bristol City Council pulling funding due to what it said was a lack of confidence in the organisers.
A man who survived the Bath Blitz will today have an operation performed on an injury sustained during the raid.
Jack Savour was only 12 when he dislocated his wrist falling from a wall - but he received little treatment as the hospitals tried to cope with the hundreds injured in the bombing raid.
Hear his dramatic account of the moment the bombs first hit:
A 600-year-old gold ring found in a Somerset farmer's field has sold at auction for thousands over its guide price.
The rare Saint George ring has gone under the hammer for £7,000, double what it was valued at. Experts believe it belonged to a nobleman from the early 16th century.
History enthusiast Paul Saxton, who found the treasure with a metal detector in the middle of rainstorm, could not believe his luck. In 16 years of metal detecting this is the first time he has found something of value.
His find was logged with the Museum of Somerset before its spectacular sale at auction.
“Old gold has a lustre to it. It comes out of the land as clean as it goes in,"
“I was the first person to handle it in hundreds of years.".
