Description

Alfred N. Hambrook was a stationer and printer whose shop in Snodland High Street served the community for around fifty years from 1901. His postcards of Snodland and district are well known. Together with his brother Percy he produced a great number of other views especially in the first quarter of the century. ‘H Bros S’ (Hambrook Brothers Snodland) identifies much of their work often produced commercially for different villages or towns. This book concentrates on an area of mid Kent all within about a dozen miles of Snodland. Alfred was also general manager of Stedman & Co. in West Malling for a time. Hambrook and Stedman each contributed to the ‘Kent Series’ of coloured postcards from around 1905 and examples from the series are included in this book. Hambrook was a good photographer and his images show a way of life and a landscape now much changed by the trappings of modern society.
