Taunton Through Time Paperback / softback
by Simon Haines
Part of the Through Time series
Taunton is the largest town in the county of Somerset and boasts a rich and fascinating history that can be archaeologically traced back to the Bronze and Iron Ages.
The Saxons and Normans, events such as the English Civil War and Monmouth Rebellion, the medieval cloth trade, the Victorian era, and twentieth-century planners have all left their mark on the town.
This book combines more than ninety archive photographs and old picture postcards of the streets, buildings, and people of Taunton with contemporary photographs of the town as it looks now.
In this volume you can see Taunton as your forefathers may have seen it; compare those scenes with images of the town today, and discover something of the rich history that Taunton, the county town of Somerset, has to offer.
