Exeter The Golden Years
Exeter The Golden Years
  • Description

This exciting book comprises over 300 photographs from the nationally renowned Isca Collection of photographs owned by the author, PeterThomas.

These powerful images provide a poignant reminder of Exeter as it was in the decades following the bombing of the city in the Second World War. Pure nostalgia, the photographs included also remind us just how much the city has changed, and how much has been lost to so-called planning and development over that time.

The author, himself a native Exonian, has written passionately about this loss, while carefully selecting photographs that he knows will provide his readers with glimpses of the city they too will treasure and enjoy.

Here is a book that is an evocative reminder for all those who were there, and a marvellous heirloom for those who remain.

Peter Thomas might well be dubbed Exeter’s honorary historian as for over many years he has contributed to countless events, exhibitions and publications associated with the city’s past. As a photographer he has produced a considerable number of illustrated books on Exeter and Devon based on his own photographs, but it is as an historian and collector of photographs that he is best known, not least for his establishment of the Isca Collection. Peter lives in Exeter.

The Isca Photographic Collection is an irreplaceable archive covering the City of Exeter. Founded in 1974 the nucleus of the collection comprises 42 000 photographic images. Based largely on the work of HenryWyke whose studio was based in Exeter until the mid-1970s, the collection has since been greatly expanded and is now recognised by many national bodies as being of unique regional and national importance.
