Description

James Simonton, founder of the J.S. & S. postcard business, came to Doncaster around 1908, settling in the outlying village of Wadworth. His three sons, James junior, Frederick and Francis, were all initially involved in the family business, and between 1908 and 1950 the firm photographed virtually every street and numerous local events in the towns and villages within a twenty-mile radius of Doncaster, producing thousands of topographical picture postcard views of Doncaster and its environs at the dawn of the twentieth century. Illustrated with 200 images of shops, street scenes, buildings and the transport of yesteryear, and accompanied by informative captions, this fascinating book captures the Doncaster of the past. It is an essential guide for lovers of photography and for anyone with an interest in the history of the area.show more
