The city of Gloucester has been the subject of many publications in recent years that have detailed its long and eventful history. Gloucester From Old Photographs is a unique addition to the list as it records the old city during a very short time frame. The photographs were taken by the late John Rowden, mostly between the mid-1950s and the mid-1960s, when he diligently captured images of the many areas in the city before and during their redevelopment. Apart from the well-known main thoroughfares of the city, he also photographed many quiet corners and lanes that were later altered or removed.
