This diverse collection of over 200 archive images has been carefully compiled to created a lively visual chronicle of Shaftesbury over the last hundred years.This hilltop Dorset town has gently absorbed the transitions of industry and these old photographs and postcards reflect the effects of recent history on the landscape and architecture, as well as providing a nostalgic look back over the past. The selection covers times of celebration, coronations and carnivals, images of Shaftesbury captured in the snow, and a tour of the famous Shaftesbury pubs. Changing generations of Shastonians are remembered here, preserved in their school photographs. Eric Olsen unites each image with an informative historical commentary. This book is a vivid reminder of times gone by, and a valuable record of Shaftesbury, for residents and visitors alike
