Local history - Cowes, Isle of Wight

Every building tells a story and as well as illustrating interesting buildings, it's fascinating to learn more about who lived in them and what sort of life they led. This history section has been researched through old photographs, postcards, newspaper advertisements and articles from websites, newspapers, censuses and trade directories.

Most of the images you see on these Local History pages can be ordered as a postcard, card or print.
