At first sight Wells has changed little over the last 150 years and Edwardian residents would still feel at home. This is particularly so in the east around the cathedral and the market place. On the other hand the west of the city, which once boasted three railway stations, has been altered out of all recognition. The buildings themselves have remained much as they always have been, but this is far from the case when it comes to occupancy.Wells Through Time takes the visitor on a guided tour of Britain s smallest and loveliest city. Many of the older pictures were taken by the Philips City Studio, a business that operated in the Market Place for the best part of a century, and it is to be hoped that these photographs will prove an inspiration to those who visit Wells today and a souvenir for those who have known the city in days gone by.
