Other Kidbrooke History Books
We display other Kidbrooke history books and maps that are available to buy online.
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.
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.
