Reading Photographic MemoriesBy Martin Andrew
This evocative collection of archive photographs from the world-famous Francis Frith Collection shows Reading from mid-Victorian times and depicts the considerable changes it has undergone during the twentieth century.
Travel back in time and revisit the landmarks and places that are so characteristic of Reading in the era before the motor-car dominated our landscape. This book will spark many memories for you and your family and will provide hours of enjoyable reading and reminiscing.
Frith's historic photographs are renowned the world over for their clarity and fine detail. Unlike many local history books that reproduce old postcards, this book is packed with high-quality photographs carefully chosen from the Frith archive and in which you will find much fascinating details. Most have not been published in book form before.

" I ordered a book with a personalised touch (from my youngest kids to their grandma). Having the option to personalise is one of the reasons I bought it. It was promptly delivered, no fuss, no delays. An absolutely beautiful pictorial historical account of my Mum's home town, which I am sure she will be delighted with.
Thank you very much Francis Frith."
