CAPTURING THE MOMENT - 150 Years of Photography in Cheltenham
Published by Cheltenham Camera Club
Capturing the Moment Cheltenham was one of the first towns in the country to establish a professional photographic studio and has one of the oldest camera clubs. The book, marking the 150th anniversary of Cheltenham Camera Club, looks at how the nature of Cheltenham society influenced this development. We look at the history of photography in the town and its leading figures. The book outlines technological developments in photography and sets the photographic scene in Cheltenham into the wider social context, ending with a summary of photography in Cheltenham today.

Illustrated, 76 pages. 210 x 148 mm
