The Lake District has always been an inspiration for photographers. Its mountains and valleys and those who live and work in them have fueled the imagination of anybody armed with a camera. Often it is the romantic image which appeals - the sunset over the lake, the shepherd in the high fells; that which is unusual, breathtaking and beautiful. This collection of Lakeland photographs has all of these, but is also an honest portrayal of Lakeland people and their way of life. More than simply just another collection of old photographs, these words and pictures, brought together by the Friends of the Lake District, unpack a memory - the brief opening of a door into a time now past for an ever-changing and ever-loved landscape. A 262x268mm hardback book consisting of 160 pages and over 150 black and white photographs.
