The evocative pictures in the collection are almost entirely the work of one photographer, Alfred Vowles. Born in 1882, he worked exclusively in and around West Somerset before retiring in 1954. Because he undertook many private commissions, most of Vowles's photographs have never been published before. Although centred on Minehead, this book also contains memorable photographs of Selworthy, Dunster, Porlock, and Exmoor villages, together with attractive scenic views, people at work and play, events and architectural studies. Around Minehead will give pleasure to everyone who loves this area, resident and visitor alike, and will evoke memories for many.
