Description - Around Bradford-on-Avon by Paul De'Ath

This intriguing collection of over 200 photographs and postcards covers Bradford-on-Avon and the surrounding villages of Turleigh, Winsley, Limpley Stoke, Freshford, Avoncliff, Ilford, Westwood and Farleigh Hungerford. Each picture illustrates everyday life in and around Bradford-on-Avon during the last century. From snapshots of shops, pubs and hotel's along the Market Street, including Albert Mayell's china and greengrocery business and Albert Scrine's Colonial Meat company in 1906, to vistas of the local churches, horse-drawn vans and rubber mills standing on the banks of the River Avon, which recall the industrial heritage of this area of Wiltshire during the nineteenth century, as well as events such as street carnivals and the flooding river. This volume shows a variety of scenes which will doubtless prove invaluable for all who know Bradford-on-Avon and remember the are before many of the changes took place, while offering a fascinating glimpse into the past for newcomers to this historic region.
