The beautiful images in this book of 24 detachable postcards all feature the River Thames. From its source in rural Gloucestershire to Gravesend in Essex, the photographs paint a unique portrait of this iconic river. The photographs capture the river during a critical century, from about 1860 to 1960, as it made the transition from an idyllic seeming past into the modern world. Here we see the Thames as a major transport route and a holiday destination - a place for both work and recreation. The photographs feature the work of many photographers, including Henry Taunt, and the book is published to accompany a touring exhibition which launched in Henley-on-Thames in September 2007.
