A Study of Bradford-on-Avon Through the Twentieth Century. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “This ambitious book focuses on the small Wiltshire town of Bradford on Avon, famous since the middle ages for the manufacture of wool and cloth and since the mid-nineteenth century for rubber products. Until the early 1990s the town’s prosperity was firmly based on rubber. Bradford on Avon, now often thought of as a picturesque destination for tourists was, first and foremost, a working town, lived in by working folk. It is this theme which emerges most strongly from Margaret Dobson’s panoramic study.”
