Whitstable is a town steeped in history. From its famous native oysters to the important harbour, and the now-closed railway to old buildings and alleyways, the past is all around. The town has drawn holidaymakers since Victorian times and there is a wealth of history contained in the postcards and pictures following that period. This volume draws on those old picture postcards and other ephemera to present a varied look at Whitstable's past. The book contains sections featuring comical 'Dainty' postcards, pub and shop signs and advertisements, and also some modern photographs illustrating the more recent redevelopments. It will bring nostalgic memories for locals, and is sure to fascinate anyone who has ever visited Whitstable.
