Britain Yesterday and Today （Janice Anderson）
Through illuminating text, along with 250 fascinating black-and-white and color photographs, this stunning volume provides a unique window on Britain's past and present.
What did Britain look like then—and now? Britain Yesterday & Today shows you the changes by contrasting photos of the same scene in two different eras—beautiful black and white for the past and color images for the present. Observe the amazing transformation that has taken place over a century and a half, from the country to the city and from shore to shore, from sport and leisure to the workplace. Marvel at the beauty of the untouched countryside, discover the power stations turned into museums and docks and then converted into modern commercial enterprises. You’ll witness the mistakes made in the name of progress, as well as those things that have reassuringly remained the same.
