The British Isles in Colour: South West England and the Scilly Isles

A new series of books from Lone Fox Publishing showcasing Photochrom photography, an early type of colour photography that brings to life scenes from an era that we usually visualise in black and white. The technique was mainly used for postcards and as a result the photographers concentrated on subjects of interest to the visitor and hopefully the recipient of their card; beautiful locations and the seaside are natural favourites, but also historic and civic landmarks, social scenes, parks and train stations.

The photos in this collection were taken from 1890-1910 and feature the counties of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset.
