Since the development of photography in the middle of the last century, the picture of our pasts provided by the written chronicle, the museum artefact or by failing memory has been augmented by the most vivid and immediate relic of former times, the photograph. Authenticating even as it describes, the photograph is of its time in a way that other representations of the past are not. Comprising the work of both professionals and gifted amateurs, this fascinating volume makes available for the first time in collected form many photographs that have all but disappeared. For those old and lucky enough to remember, it offers a delightful trip down memory lane: for others, it will be a voyage of discovery and surprises.
