I think when I first arrived in Dawlish last year, I saw a set of then & now pics of the town or did I dream it? Anyone know / remember this? Because I can't remember where I saw it.
This sort of thing fascinates me, so if I dreamt it, I would love to do a series of them mysel if anyone knows of where I can get access to turn of the century (19th/20th) pics?
There are several "then & now" books and local history books in Dawlish library plus a box full of newspaper cuttings. You can also get this sort of thing from the history group and museum.
So I didn't dream it! ;-) thanks for that
The Dawlish Gazette print a then and now picture most weeks which are quite fascinating. I subscribe to the online version of the Gazette and its nice to compare the photos.
