Hampshire is a vibrant county where things have changed regularly. In keeping up with the times, though, it has kept much of what is best about its past, and much of the county's charm comes from features that can seem changeless. The modern photographs in this book are taken from as close as possible to the locations of the older ones with which they are paired, allowing the reader to see what has and has not changed. Individual chapters cover towns, villages, the coast and countryside, life in Hampshire and historic sites, and the subjects vary from familiar locations such as the historic centre of Winchester, the military and coastal attractions of Portsmouth and Southsea, and the muchfrequented towns of the New Forest, to some of the less well-known villages of the county and even some views that have been 'lost' over the past century.
