Greater London - A Narrative of Its History, Its People, and Its Places


Cat No.:   GB0550:

These books are an absolutely invaluable resource for those with ancestors in the greater London area in the 1800s. Every place is described in superb detail, together with lovely illustrations that can be used in your family history files. Bear in mind that at the time the book was written, such places were tiny villages out in the countryside, and with very small populations. To read about the conditions and facilities in each of them is not only fascinating, but it adds so much useful background information about how your ancestors lived. Incorporate it into *your* history!
