The Devonian seaside town on Teignmouth has seen many changes to its way of life through its long history as a port, a fishing and boat-building town and a holiday resort. Is building change and its inhabitants make their living in different ways as the years go by but always the sea has moulded the way of life here. This fascinating selection of photographs illustrates some of the changes that have occurred over the last hundred years or so comparing a series of old photographs with modern ones taken from exactly the same locations. The reader can follow the changes and then revisit the locations to see then in a new light, just as they were seen by earlier generations of town residents. The comparisons are often remarkable to see. Viv Wilson is a renowned local historian with many publications to her credit. She is also the founder of the Wilson Archive - an extensive collection of local photographs of the area. She has drawn on this collection for the old images used in this book.
