Yeovil's changing face is expertly documented in this fascinating collection of over seventy-five paired photographs. The images range in date from one of the earliest surviving street scenes, taken in the 1860s, to the ubiquitous postcard views of the early twentieth century townscape. In fact, several of these older images are published here - courtesy of the Museum of South Somerset - for the very first time. Many of the modern views, which are as 'up-to-the-minute' as the Millennium Clock and the Yeo Leisure Park, have been especially commissioned for this publication. Thematically arranged, scenes include local streets, businesses, public services, churches, public houses, parks and gardens, and the suburbs. The photographs are knowledgeably captioned by local authors Robin Ansell and Jack Sweet. Uniquely, the compilers have also provided a useful checklist of all the professional photographers who operated in the town between 1859 and 1939. If the Yeovil of yesterday, and today, intrigues you, then this book deserves a place on you bookshelf!
