Warminster Pictorial, Volume One

Danny Howell
Warminster Pictorial is the collective title for a series of books portraying everyday life in Warminster, Wiltshire.

The emphasis throughout is on people but places, buildings, events, activities and things of note will also be included, providing a visual record for all to share.

The majority of the photographs included in the series are due to the pioneering work of Warminster's leading local historian Danny Howell. They have been taken or have been collected by him over the years, building up what is undoubtedly the biggest archive of Warminster photographs, comprising over 100,000 pictures in the form of negatives, prints, transparencies and digital images. Many of these are now saved for posterity in the Danny Howell Photographic Archive.

This first volume of the Warminster Pictorial features photographs on the following themes:

The Inn Crowd;

Men At Work;
Beckford Moments;
Man's Best Friend;
The World's Biggest Coffee Morning 2001;
I Get Around;
More A Puzzle Than A Quiz;
The W.I. Market;
CTP 3rd Annual Run To Colerne;
St. George's Autumn Fair 2001;
Warminster Brass Band;
The Farmers' Market;
and Warminster Camera Club.

The book also includes an index.

As well as photographs by Danny Howell, this volume also features photographs specially loaned by several kind friends and organisations including Mary and Roger Airey, Margaret Aven, Mary Cash, Dennis Davey, Gladys Howlett, Bruce Matthews, Geoff Tout, Mark and Sandra Vale; Warminster Camera Club; Dave and Val Whatley; and Josephine Willett.
