    Ashford Visual Recollections

    by Steve R Salter

    See the changing face of Ashford. Focusing on the period covering the 1950s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, the reader is taken on a journey from pre-change to post-change, using a well-devised balance of both colour and black and white images from the author’s extensive archive on the town, including many recently acquired and never printed before.

    The images depict life in Ashford and its immediate surrounding during uncertain times for many, and many of the intense changes to the town are clearly illustrated. The focus is on ‘living memory’, and will bring a tear to the eye of those who witnessed and experienced these changes.
