Riassunto: Across the Isle of Wight, houses, forts, castles, and monuments have fallen victim to the passage of time. Sometimes the only clue that they ever existed is in a name, like Wilkes Street, where John Wilkes had a seaside villa in Sandown, or Nash Avenue, where John Nash built his retirement home at East Cowes Castle. What did they look like and what stands there now? Contrasting a selection of 45 outstanding archive images alongside stunning full-color modern photographs, this book reveals the changing face of the Island?s towns and villages during the last century. Each picture is accompanied by a detailed caption, bringing the past to life. Describing aspects of Island life such as shops, business, pubs, and sports, this book is a delight for tourists as well as a vital record of vanished vistas and past practices. The Isle of Wight Then & Now presents a nostalgic glimpse of how the Island used to be.
L'autore: Jan Toms is descended from a long line of Islanders. She is author of The Little Book of the Isle of Wight and has also written articles for Island Life magazine and the online magazine Suite 101.
