The recent history of the heritage town of Whitstable, ever famous for its oysters, is vividly recalled in this fascinating collection of over 200 photographs and picture postcards spanning the last one hundred years. A combination of rare and more familiar views illustrate the many changes that have taken place in both Whitstable and Tankerton as well as in neighbouring villages such as Swalecliffe and Seasalter. People, fashions, shops, transport and industry have all altered beyong recognition. The oyster industry, which dominated the town's economy in the early part of this century, has declined, but the indomitable spirit of the people has survived this and more: floods, freezing, wartime bombing and the vagaries of the sea, to name but some. Entertainments, celebrations, regattas, seaside fun and amusements and holidaymakers also have their place alongside the everyday activities of ordinary people at home, at school, in the street, on the seafront and at work. Mick Glover is a native of Whitstable whose family have lived there for generations. The evocative images included here, many of which have been drawn from the author's private collection, will appeal to all those who know and love this historic town.
