Pictures of the past

We who study the history of Sidmouth are very fortunate that there are so many pictures of the past.

For the last few years I have been collecting photographs and other printed material showing how Sidmouth has evolved. These images shown here are all more than 50 years old and therefore copyright has lapsed, as far as I understand. If you believe that I am inadvertently infringing your copyright please contact me and I will put it right.

Because many of these pictures required restoration and rebalancing in order to show as much detail as possible I claim copyright of the corrected images, however I am happy for you to download them for private study or your own records. If you would like to use them in other ways then please contact me first through the contact page.

The images I have are, of course, in greater detail than can be shown online. If you would like a high resolution image of just a small area of a picture then again please contact me and I’ll be happy to provide it.
