The recent history of Brixton, Herne Hill, West Norwood, Tulse Hill and Gipsy Hill is brought vividly to life in this selection of superb photographs from Lambeth Archives Department. The book gives an unforgettable impression of familiar streets and districts as they developed, and offers an evocative insight into the lives and living conditions of the residents in the early years of this century. The collection shows busy shopping streets in the 1920s and '30s when they were packed with horse-drawn carts, primitive motor cars, trams, bicycles and hurrying pedestrians. Rare views of neighbourhoods that have been transformed by modern development offer a visual record of how the area has changed over the centuries. This is an important book that will evoke fond memories in residents and fascinate visitors to the area.
