Barnet & District Local History Society

Sutton Publishing 1996

[Britain in Old Photographs series]

"This superb collection of over 250 historic photographs gives an unforgettable impression of Chipping Barnet, New Barnet and Hadley in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The pictures show the dramatic development that has taken place in the area over the last 100 years, and the offer an evocative insight into the changing lives and living conditions of the local people.

"The book recalls familiar streets and districts as they were built up, and it provides a lasting record of houses, public buildings, shops, businesses and pubs that have vanished or been altered almost beyond recognition. It also features pictures of famous individuals who left their mark on Barnet and contributed to the character and reputation of the district today."

 A typical "formula old picture book - with normally two pictures a page and a short descriptive text.
