Description

Southampton City Heritage Services provides opportunities for people to study and enjoy the city's past. It preserves historic monuments, operates archaeology and oral history units, and runs three museums, the first of which opened in 1912. Its photographic collection contains some 50,000 images, giving a rare insight into many aspects of Southampton's past, including the docks and many historic buildings which were destroyed by the blitz. Southampton had several eminent Victorian photographers who left a legacy of candid pictures depicting both work and play, while the work of more recent photographers provide a graphic illustration of the rapidly changing face of a maritime city. "Images of Southampton" comprises pictures from this City Heritage Services collection and the result is a book which will delight and inform residents and visitors alike.
