Bedfordshire Through Time contains delightful period photographs of the towns and villages in this rural county. These images have been sourced mainly from the Sandy Chrystal postcard collection held by Bedfordshire & Luton Archives & Records Service - many being published for the first time. The contrasting modern colour pictures provide accessible and interesting insights into the many changes that have taken place over decades. The book also features extracts from a range of guidebooks and historical publications by authors such as journalist Arthur Mee and historian C. Gore Chambers, which appeared in the first fifty years of the last century when the original pictures were taken. While the major towns of Luton and Bedford have suffered from modernisation, most of this county's heritage has been left largely untouched for us to enjoy today.
