Description

This fascinating volume of archive pictures recalls life as it once was on Dartmoor: the towns, the villages and the local people who lived and worked on the moor between the 1860s and 1950s. Illustrated with over 200 archive photographs and postcards, many of which have never before been published, this intriguing collection features snapshots of people going about their day-to-day activities, including farming, quarrying and mining, alongside timeless vistas of extensive moorland, granite tors and valley woodlands. From churches and farmhouses, railways and roads, to social gatherings such as hunts, races and fairs, each picture recalls the history, culture an resources of these resilient communities in their rugged environment. Each image is supported by informative text detailing the rich history of Dartmoor. This book is sure to appeal to both visitors and residents who wish to learn something of yesterday's Dartmoor.
