Description

This fascinating collection of full-colour Trowbridge views reveals the many changes that Wiltshire's county town has seen. Each pair of photographs - each drawing on the extensive collections of the authors, Trowbridge's librarian and archivist respectively, and featuring beautiful modern photography - reveals a different aspect of the town's story. Trowbridge has witnessed profound change over the last century, and some of the early scenes revealed here are totally unrecognisable today. However, some of the finer buildings are little altered, and Trowbridge residents will recognise much in this collection. Deeply nostalgic and filled with insightful and entertaining information about the history of this beautiful Wiltshire town, Trowbridge Then & Now will delight visitors and residents alike.show more
