Combe Down, Monkton Combe and Prior Park photos

Monkton Combe, early 1900s

Monkton Combe, early 1900s

A picture  is worth a thousand words. Pictures and photos have the ability to make us feel happy, excited, nostalgic, curious and can raise many other emotions. They can bring back memories of people – of parents, grand parents and other members of the family – and of places – where I played or met my friends or loved to go.

Looking at old photos can also make us wonder about the past, how was it then, who are those people in the photo?

Combe Down, Monkton Combe and Prior Park photos, drawings, paintings, engravings etc., especially good quality old images are not easy to find compared with the many that exist for the famous monuments etc, of central Bath. 

If you have any that could appear on this page then I’d be grateful if you could email me a good quality copy to publish. Meanwhile, enjoy what is on these pages.
