Product description

Guildford is visited by thousands of tourists every year, all of whom are delighted by the landmarks that they discover, such as the famous Guildhall, the castle and the picturesque River Wey. Still maintaining much of its historical charm, the town has still seen plenty of change. "Guildford Past and Present" features an absorbing collection of images that documents the town's development and growth over several centuries. Matching evocative archive images with modern photographs taken from the same viewpoint, this book perfectly captures the character of Surrey's thriving county town. Compiled by the author of two previous books about the town, and containing previously unpublished material, this fascinating volume will be of interest to both Guildford's residents and visitors alike.
