Ashford Then & Now Revisited
Ashford Then & Now Revisited is a superb collection photographs compiled by author and local historian Steve R. Salter. Scenes of yesteryear are contrasted with modern colour views to show the changing face of the town over the years. This book offers an insight into people’s daily lives and living conditions, and the nature of the photographs coupled with the author’s informative captions show the sometimes drastic changes which have taken place in the name of progress.
Drawing on detailed local knowledge of the community and illustrated with a wealth of fascinating images, this book recalls what has changed (and in some cases remained the same) in Ashford in terms of buildings, traditions and ways of life.
