Description

The London Borough of Harrow has seen dramatic changes over the decades, moving gradually away from its countrified roots to become a bustling and diverse urban centre. Local historian Don Walter's view that 'Harrow is not the place it was' is evident in this selection of archive images of Harrow's streets over the last century, but modern Harrow has changed both a huge amount and surprisingly little over the last 100 years, due both to population growth and the clever actions of far-sighted town administrators of decades past. Placing these archive images alongside beautiful modern photography of the same views today and fascinating informative captions, "Harrow Then & Now" takes us on a tour of the changing face of this historic area, from the modern central streets to the beautifully preserved historic school in Harrow on the Hill.show more
