Lost Dorset could easily be called ‘Unknown Dorset’, for few of the 350 photographs chosen from Barry Cuff’s remarkable collection of Dorset postcards have been published before, and many are extremely rare. The result is a large 200 page hardback documenting Dorset’s villages and rural way of life through a period of extraordinary upheaval and change.
