David Trmper and Ray Farlow's eagerly awaited "Around Oswestry" provides an illuminating insight into the history of this fascinating town and its surrounding area, which include the market towns of Ellesmere and Wem, as well as innumerable smaller towns, villages and hamlets such as Gobowen, Whittington, Welshampton and Dudleston. These carefully chosen high quality photographs from Ray Farlow's archive depict all aspects of bygone life in Shropshire. There are bustling town scenes with now-vanished local businesses, houses and streets, stately homes, parks, monuments, churches, shops, pubs and hotels, along with images of the characters and folk who are perhaps the most important aspect of Oswestry in times past. Of interest to anyone who knows and loves this area, this book opens a window on the past, with over two hundred images cataloguing its variety.
