Now and Then: Bath in the 1850s vs Today

30 April @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

Now and then: Bath in the 1850s vs today

For more on Lockey, the book Bath In Camera 1849-1861 is illustrated with fascinating photographs of nineteenth-century Bath – see here for details.

In the 1850s Reverend Francis Lockey was in the vanguard of using photographic negatives to capture early, and now historically important, images of Bath.

In this walk, these locations will be explored and compare them to how they looked in the 1850-60s. We will look at two medieval buildings before widening our walk to explore views from the city’s riverbank, canal and locks, and Widcombe Street.
