Rame Peninsula Through Time, by Derek Tait
Published by Amberley in 2010, 96 pages. Paperback (N5293)
Brand New Book
This book is a wonderful collection of old and new photographs of the places in and around the Rame Peninsula in South-East Cornwall.....
The older images are printed alongside a contemporary full colour photograph, which illustrates the same scene, and the contrasting illustrations show how the area has changed and developed during the last 100 years.
The photographs illustrate shops, schools, garages, churches, houses and street scenes, each photograph is captioned and the book has an introduction which gives a brief overview of the history of the area.
As you browse through the photographs, you will notice the increase in the number of vehicles on the roads and the number of residents, how shops and other businesses have evolved and the changes and developments in modes of transportation and the architecture of the area.
The book is thus a must read for anyone who has lived or grown up in the area, as well as anyone with a more general interest in the local history of this part of Cornwall in years gone by....
