Hardback
by Robert Bard

Burial grounds have been developed, built upon, grassed over and razed from history. Modern development of railways, tunnels and buildings have revealed and disturbed many.

Spas, Wells & Pleasure Gardens of London

Hardback
by James Stevens Curl
London was once blessed with spas set in gardens, where beneficial waters could be consumed and enjoyed in agreeable surroundings, sometimes with music, food and alcohol. They were, in effect, the pleasure resorts of the 18th century. With the aid of many images, the author - one of England's most distinguished architectural historians - provides a racy, informative, humorous and well-researched social hist...

Fulham Past

Hardback
by Barbara Denny
Fulham has changed enormously in the last twenty-five years; smart shops and restaurants have moved inexorably west along the Fulham Road, terraces of pleasant houses were spruced up and the former industrial areas, having lain derelict for years, have been redeveloped. The author begins with Fulham's rural past, the nursery gardens and mansions, when the area was closely associated with the Thames and domi...

Lambeth Past

Hardback
by Hannah Renier
Lambeth and its Palace, the London residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury, have a long history. Lambeth was also the home of a famous pottery, Vauxhall Motors, and a reviving Festival. On the Lambeth bank of the Thames, the Gunpowder Plot was hatched. And in humdrum Lambeth, the National Theatre was born at the Old Vic, and London's County Hall built. The new importance of London's Thames-side South Bank...

East Ham & West Ham Past

Hardback
by Jim Lewis
East Ham and West Ham, now the borough of Newham, have seen dramatic changes since the beginning of the 19th century. Already used by industry as it spread out of the City, these two townships, between the rivers Roding and Lea, saw the construction of the Royal docks and then of the massive Beckton gasworks. Speculative builders racked up mean terraces in the south, while in the north Stratford became a ma...

Hardback
by David Brandon & Alan Brooke

by John Richardson
The arresting cover of this A-Z book tells us much about London's workhouse, Camden Town. It pictures part of the depot for the Birmingham to Euston Railway - the two chimneys relate to machinery which pulled carriages up by cable from Euston for connection to the early steam engines at Camden. Camden Town's history exemplifies inner London areas: a settlement transformed in the 19th century by railways and...

Hackney & Stoke Newington Past

Hardback
by Isobel Watson
The farms and nursery gardens of these two old villages gave way to terraces for City workers in the 19th century. As with other suburbs the railway era permitted the affluent to leave, abandoning the area to poorer workers. The author records the problems related to the creation of Victoria Park and the significant local presence of protestant dissenting movements. Famous residents include Samuel Rogers, J...

Clerkenwell & Finsbury Past

Hardback
by Richard Tames
The monastic institution of the Priory of St John and St Mary's nunnery formed the earliest development here, but the 'closed shop' practices of City merchants forced many craftsmen, especially Huguenots and Italians, to settle outside the City's authority, particularly in nearby Clerkenwell. Watch and clockmaking, printing and jewellery became the special trades of the area. Even today, an Italian communit...
