Description

This second selection of archive images of Chingford, like its predecessor, reveals the hidden past of this fascinating town. The reader is taken on a pictorial journey back in time to the end of the nineteenth century when Chingford was still a small, rural village, through to its development into the thriving suburban town it is today. The growth of Chingford came largely following the arrival of the railway in 1873 when visitors flocked in their thousands to enjoy the delights of Epping Forest to the north of Chingford. Due to its attractive location, and proximity to London, the town continued to grow and was incorporated into the London Borough of Waltham Forest in 1938. This unique collection of images explores an area steeped in history and individuality, and charts its transformation into one of the most fashionable, and expensive, places to live in Britain today.show more
