Regular readers of this Critical Research Journal will know that I have been doing a Pilot Rephotography Project https://wp.me/p9BvX0-dm reproducing old images of the town of Tetbury in Gloucestershire. This has been done in conjunction with the History of Tetbury Society (HOTS) http://www.tetburyhistory.com/ that has kindly provided me with the old images. The pilot project is intended to test out the methodology and approach of retaking these images and will give the Society a chance to consider and comment on the work and whether they have any interest in extending the project and in what form.
My work for now is complete with the seven images reproduced as carefully as possible with a colour and black and white present day version. These are the seven images along with my recent interpretation:
Image 1 – Cutwell
Image 2 – West Street
Image 3 – Bath Bridge
Image 4 – The Market Place (original image provided by Gloucester Records Office)
Image 5 – Chipping Street
Image 6 – The Chipping
Image 7 – Northfield
My name is Alison Price and for the past ten years I have travelled the world photographing wildlife, including Alaska, Antarctica, Borneo, Botswana, the Canadian Arctic, Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Very good. The historical chaps should be well pleased.
Interesting that you have The Market Place and The Chipping as chipping means market. Was The Chipping where the market was originally held?
How interesting. I didn’t know that. I don’t the answer to your question either but I am sure someone in the History of Tetbury Society will know.
