Flowing for nearly 100 miles through gently rolling countryside at the very heart of England, the Avon is one of the most quintessentially English rivers in the country. Visiting such places as Naseby, Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon, Evesham, and Tewkesbury, this book captures visions of the river as it used to be, from historic battlefields to Edwardian tourism and, of course, with plenty of Shakespearian history sprinkled in. Postcards on every page—many posted to friends and relatives by visitors to the river and its world-famous associated attractions—illustrate this journey through the five counties through which the Avon passes. Not only is this book a record of how the river and its surroundings once appeared, but it also shows how they were immortalized by generations of photographers and artists, printers and publishers.
