Graham Salter's photo-book … covers 50 or so places with Dickensian connections and illustrates the journey with extracts from his writing, with carefully researched written commentary and with illustrations to supplement the modern photographs which provide the principal focus.
… The photographs are stunningly beautiful: clear, magnificently evocative of moments in the writing, and rich in colour. Of particular interest are some of the interior locations not necessarily seen by visitors to the area.
Modestly priced… value for money… making a substantial contribution to our knowledge and approach to the way we regard Dickens and topography.
(Tony Williams: The Dickensian, Summer 2012)
You are to be congratulated on producing such a visually exciting and informative product. The images are really superb. We wish you every success.
(Peter Boreham, Curator, Rochester Guildhall Museum)
I would like to congratulate you on not only the quality of the photographs but more especially on the quality of the research. So many books have been published recently because of the bi-centenary and many of them are under-researched or more notable for omissions than anything else... Your pictures of the interior of the Bull hotel and King's Head were especially interesting and unusual.
(Brian Nimmo, Curator, Watt's Charity: The Six Poor Travellers)
