Ryde Postcards Summary


Ryde Postcards: Images of England by Lynette Archer

This unique description of over 230 archive postcards and photographs of Ryde and its environs evocatively captures the vibrant history of this seaside town over the last century. Once considered to be the main gateway to the Isle of Wight, Ryde had several photographers residing locally, who were often on the sport to record an event, celebration or disaster when it occurred, as well as the changing fashions, businesses, shops and transport, including the trams which took day visitors and holiday makers alike along the esplanade and pier, the latter long-gone. Compiled from the collection held by Lynette Archer and John Woodford of the Isle of Wight Picture Postcard Collectors Club, this book provides an insight into everyday life in and around Ryde as it once was, from timeless views of the sea front to snapshots of urban streets and buildings, particularly the local hotels which vied with each other for custom during the summer months.
