Bath: Past and Present, Joyce & Wells

Bath: Past and Present - Noel Joyce, H.Mary Wills, Maria Joyce

So here's a great idea: Take an archive of old photos of Bath then try to replicate them as accurately as possible to illustrate the changes and similarities between then and now. But "now" has become "then" too since we are talking about a project undertaken in '86-87. This actually adds to the charm as it is now a historical record twice over; we need an update - even a big project that takes images from every decade to show the slow evolution of the city.

 

The research about each image and what has changed in the intervening time is excellent and interesting - this is a fab little book.
