Synopsis

Cheltenham Then & Now is a superb collection photographs of the town, compiled by Sue Rowbotham and Jill Waller. Scenes of yesteryear are contrasted with modern colour views to show what has been lost and what remains. This book offers an insight into people's daily lives and living conditions in the town, and the nature of the photographs and the authors' informative captions show the sometimes drastic changes which have taken place in the name of progress. Drawing on detailed local knowledge of the community and illustrated with a wealth of fascinating images, this book recalls what has changed in Cheltenham in terms of buildings, traditions and ways of life. Witness the people of the past juxtaposed against their twenty-first century descendants. Each pairing of photographs includes detailed captions that will awaken nostalgic memories for all who know and love Cheltenham. Featuring streets and buildings, shops and businesses, and people at work, all aspects of town life are covered.
