Wiltshire: Life & Times

In association with the Wiltshire Times

The towns and villages of Wiltshire have undergone great change over the last 150 years, with developments taking place that have altered every aspect of daily life: work, school, shopping, transport and communications, architecture and home life.

To celebrate its 150th anniversary, the Wiltshire Times has opened its archive of pictures representing more than a century of life in the county to put together the fascinating pictorial record that is Wiltshire: Life & Times. The people, events and landmarks of today and yesterday are brought together in a volume that will appeal to anyone with an interest in the way that the local area has developed over the years.

Here are the stories that made headlines in years gone by, from the serious to the bizarre. Elections, fires and floods, celebrity visits, buildings old and new – this collection of more than 400 photographs will have something for everyone. Even the role played by the Wiltshire Times in the life of the county is illustrated, with photographs that show how the paper itself has developed, from the early days of ‘hot metal’ printing to the digital era.

This delightful book is packed with carefully chosen pictures that reflect the richness of life in Wiltshire and document the social history of its people.
