A History of Southampton in Picture Postcards
Author: Clive Brooks and Peter Boyd-Smith
This book represents a photographic history of Southampton from around the time of the first great age of expansion in 1860 to that poignant historical watershed, the final journey of the floating bridge between Crosshouse and Woolston in 1977.
With over 250 illustrations, black and white photographs and postcards including 32 reproduced in full colour, this is the most complete, illustrated history of Southampton and the surrounding area ever published. Clear and concise captions point out the interesting features in every photograph and by doing so tell the history of the town through the eyes and lenses of a large number of both amateur and professional photographers.
In addition to the work of the postcard publishers, the illustrations include contemporary advertisements, these provide a fascinating insight into the lives of our forbears and create an authentic taste of life as it used to be.
