Despite its isolation on the Suffolk coast, Aldeburgh has a long and prosperous history, from Roman times to Victorian industrial expansion and modern development as a holiday destination. Coates celebrates this heritage with a wealth of historic and contemporary paintings and photographs depicting scenes from the town's past, its buildings and notable inhabitants. He also considers literary figures, such as George Crabbe and Edward FitzGerald, whose work it inspired, and Benjamin Britten's enduring musical legacy in the Aldeburgh Festival.
