High Street, Buttermarket, Cornmarket, Pump Lane, North Street, Park Street, have such a deceptive familiarity to the English ear that they might be found in any English town. They are names that suggest a sense of continuity and tradition – something very English.” “John Comino-James has photographed the streets, shops and shopkeepers in the centre of Thame, an historic market town some 45 miles from London. Portraits, texts and candid photographs are contained in a sequence representing a meandering walk through the town, during which are encountered the last cattle market operating in the area, travelling showmen at one of the two annual fairs, and the weekly street market.

Condition: light edge-wear to dust-jacket, otherwise very good.
