Around Haslemere and Hindhead From Old Photographs offers a fascinating glimpse into life in the southA ]west corner of Surrey over the last hundred years or so. More than 230 images illustrate the changes that have overtaken the area in and around the old market town of Haslemere and Hindhead. This charming book introduces us to the famous people who made their home in the area, people such as Alfred Lord Tennyson who lived at Aldworth and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and George Bernard Shaw who were neighbours in Hindhead. Drawing upon an eclectic collection of photographs, the author offers a charming glimpse into the history of this area. There is something for everyone here, whether they have lived in this corner of Surrey all their lives, or whether they are just visiting this fabulous area. It also shows how photography has continually evolved to keep up with an ever changing society.
