Cheltenham is a beautiful town and the people who live here can boast a strong sense of community. In this book, local author Elaine Heasman has compiled over 250 archive photographs of Cheltenham, through which she has captured a sense of the changing landscape of the town and the people who have inhabited it. Through these images, Cheltenham's yesterdays are brought to life. The book includes pictures of buildings, celebrations, local advertisements and personalities from Cheltenham's past. This eclectic selection contains, amongst many other items, photographs of cadets on manoeuvre in 1897, a game of tennis in Pittville Park in 1908, Prestbury High Street in 1934 and bathers at the Lido in the 1950s. If you are a lifelong Cheltonian, you will love this book - indeed, you may even be in it! Most, if not all, of the scenes will be familiar to you or your friends and family. If you have not enjoyed such a long-standing acquaintance with the town, this personal and absorbing glimpse of the past will give you a feel of what it was like to live here.
