Hythe is situated on the south-east coast of Kent, just 25 miles or so from France. One of the famous Cinque Ports, Hythe also became a popular seaside resort in the Edwardian era, providing fetes, fairs, donkey derbies, and bathing huts for its many visitors. Like all settlements, Hythe has had to alter and change, but unlike many, it has managed to retain its charm as a small English town steeped in history. Hythe continued to flourish in the interwar years, being advertised as the 'Pride of Kent' by the Southern Railway. After the Second World War, visitor numbers declined and redevelopment inevitably occurred, but Hythe still remains a pleasant place to visit and live. A photograph captures a moment in time, and this book, as well as providing a depiction of Hythe's fascinating history, is also a record of the town in the year 2010.
