“This 620 page book is packed with information, and is guaranteed to interest the reader for many months, not just for Christmas! Avoid cheap photocopies that are difficult to read and have poor image quality! FamLoc is the only publisher to properly republish local history books. Originally published in 1890, this FamLoc edition is a slight modification. The images have been moved to better coincide with the text, and there have been changes to format and punctuation. However, the grammar and prose has been faithfully retained, other than changes to a handful of typographical errors and the very few instances where clarity was required. “Records of the Woolwich District vol. II” covers Abbey Wood, Bexley, Charlton, Eltham, Erith, Kidbrook, North Woolwich, Plumstead, Shooters Hill, Welling, and Wickham, as well as additional topics on Woolwich. It includes over 200 illustrations, plus 45 photographic portraits of local men of influence. The book includes many old maps, is rich in the main institutions of churches, schools, charities and industries, and also includes topography, and notable events, making it invaluable for the local historian, family historian, and others with connections to the area around Woolwich.”

Other Bexley History Books
We list in our panel (above) Bexley history books and maps that are available to buy online.
We also include maps because they are a valuable source for making sense of the location and street names. Of particular interest are the Godfrey Edition maps, which are printed at a large scale, have street names included, and have the bonus of extracts from directories on the reverse, showing the names and proprietors of shops, doctors, etc.
We at FamLoc are very much interested in republishing out-of-print local history books and making them available to a new generation. Your suggestions are welcome.
