"Torquay Then & Now" presents a photographic record of one of the country's foremost tourist destinations. With black and white images carefully selected from the impressive archives held at Torquay Library, readers can readily compare views taken by eminent photographers during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with current scenes photographed and reproduced in full colour by the author, who also provides expert commentary on the changing face of the resort much lauded as 'The Queen of the English Riviera'. Residents and visitors alike will appreciate the evolving history, either wandering down memory lane or contemplating the rapid development of business and leisure facilities that have occurred in the early part of the twenty-first century.
