Summary

This compilation of photographs from The Dudley Studios Collection embodies a variety of events, covering the period 1945-2002. Illustrating Rochester and the surrounding towns of North Kent, from the Medway to Swale, this collection shows how the area has changed over the past half-century. The 200 pictures portray social, sporting, industrial and commercial subjects, along with a few familiar faces and a touch of humour. Informative captions accompany these images, with something to interest all age-groups. This book is a valuable pictorial history which will awaken nostalgic memories for some, whilst offering a unique glimpse of its past for others.
