The Centenary Celebration of a Man and a Valley
By : Adam Horovitz

Cheltenham was one of the first towns in the country to establish a professional photographic studio and has one of the oldest camera clubs.

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.
