New Book coming September 2020

Ventnor & District Local History Society announces the publication of a new book in September 2020. It is about recovering life-worlds and discovering livelihoods through photographs. It draws on images from the Society’s archive as well as some in private hands.

The 180 or so black and white pictures span the years from 1860 to 1950 and will be accompanied by extended captions together with short narrative texts, including many personal memories.

Published price will be £12.95 (£10 for Society members)

Pre-orders: we will be taking orders for the pre-publication price £10.00 (£9.00 for VDLHS members) from next week, when the book will be available to pre-order on our Publications and Online Shop .
