The Way It Was - A History of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds in Old Photographic Postcards
Old photographic postcards are a little piece of life from the past. This small but eloquent collection takes us into the Oxfordshire Cotswolds and tells the story of lives very different from the ones we live today.
Tiny, quiet villages with dusty roads and only a horse and cart for transport; market towns where the first cars drew crowds and whole families going into the fields to bring in the ripe wheat.
The Way It Was is a fascinating record of 40 years of formidable change. People living in the area now will recognise places they know, or thought they knew.
Perhaps it will take a while to realise that they are looking at their own home, or the public house they frequent of an evening.
They will be able to chart the changes brought about by the passing of the years in a quiet, rural area, seen through the eyes of local photographers.
