Description

The Tottenham and Wood Green area has seen dramatic changes over the decades. Its rural villages, farms and market gardens have now been absorbed into the bustle of Greater London and the area has left its rural days behind. Tottenham and Wood Green Then & Now perfectly captures the changing face of the area since the middle of the nineteenth century, from new transport and fashions to the developing character of streets and the spread of the suburbs. Christine Protz and Deborah Hedgecock's selection of archive images, placed alongside beautiful modern photography of Tottenham's streets today, capture these fascinating transformations, and show how much has changed, how much has stayed the same, and the ways in which the old still influences the new.show more
