Sir John Betjeman once said that no town hides its history better than Reading, but nevertheless, history there is in abundance, and it has been richly documented since the dawn of the photographic era. Reading was one of the first towns in the world to be photographed: William Henry Fox-Talbot, the inventor of modern photography, set up his workshop here and the streets of the 1840s town became the testing ground for the new technology. This book takes a wide range of historic views of Reading and places them alongside their modern counterparts in colour. Rapid economic growth has seen dramatic changes in the town, even within living memory and this fascinating book documents not only those changes but also the remarkable continuities through it all.
