Illustrated with 200 archive photographs, postcards and other printed ephemera, many previously unpublished, "Highgate" guides the reader on a circular journey around the area, taking in street scenes, buildings, monuments and public spaces, including Highgate Cemetery, Lauderdale House, the Whittington Stone and Waterlow Park. Ancient traditions - like the 'swearing on the horns' - are recalled, as are famous people and historic schools, such as Highgate, Channing, and St Aloysius' College. Also featured are some of the surrounding areas, including Hampstead Heath, Muswell Hill and East Finchley. Coupled with informative captions offering a unique insight into the history behind each scene, this enthralling book presents a snapshot of Highgate in bygone days and is sure to appeal to all who know and love this part of north London.
