Newport, Carisbrooke & Parkhurst Summary

Newport, Carisbrooke & Parkhurst: Britain in Old Photographs by Philip Blanchard

In this intriguing selection of old images of Newport and district, the Isle of Wight's largest town is evocatively recreated in over 200 photographs, postcards and engravings from the author's own collection and other private sources, the majority of which have not been published before. This collection gives an insight into the every day life in and around Newport from the late Victorian times to the 1960s. The people who occupied these places are wonderfully preserved in this book carrying out their daily island duties and responding to the events that have shaped the Isle of Wight's history. Busy street scenes of Newport on market day are set alongside the splendour of the chalk hills and Medina river of the surrounding natural environment. Newport, Carisbrooke and Parkhurst is a valuable pictorial history of this vibrant area of the Isle of Wight, which will delight those who have visited the island and evoke memories of times past for those who have lived here.
