“The Making of Modern Streatham provides a unique exploration of south London: this isn’t boring suburbia – there’s something unexpected around every corner. With chapters on buildings, music and entertainment, transport, nature, wartime and a whole host of other themes explored, this fascinating new title is sure to be an eye-opener for those who think they know about their neck of the woods.”
– The Making of Modern Streatham
“This addition to the “Britain in Old Photographs” series brings together a collection of black-and-white pictures spanning the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Drawn from family albums, local collections and professional photographers, they show the way things were and how they have changed. Every photograph is captioned, providing names and dates where possible, revealing historical and anecdotal detail and giving life to the scenes and personalities captured through the camera lens. Bringing together all aspects of daily life – celebrations and disasters, work and leisure, people and buildings – the collection should inspire memories, as well as serve as an introduction to visitors.”
