HENLEY-ON-THAMES THEN AND NOW IN COLOUR


HENLEY-ON-THAMES THEN AND NOW IN COLOUR

JOHN PILLING    Book Number: 80851    Product format: Hardback

Illustrating the changing face of this popular town, and providing a fascinating insight into its history, an Oxfordshire historian and a professional photographer have curated this stunning selection of archive images and modern photos. Henley-on-Thames is known around the world for its famous Royal Regatta, and today is a picturesque centre for the fashionable and successful. But this was not always the case. It was once a thriving river port, but the railway boom of the 1840s took Henley's traditional trade with it, and the town's once beautiful buildings gradually fell into disrepair. Henley had to find a new source of prosperity and, in 1851, Prince Albert's patronage of the Henley annual regatta was just what it needed. Here, its affectionate documenters do it proud. 96 pages with colour plates.
