Enfield : Britain in Old Photographs, Paperback / softback Book

Enfield : Britain in Old Photographs Paperback / softback


The London Borough of Enfield, which includes the former boroughs of Southgate and Edmonton, came into being in 1965.

This selection of superb photographs gives an unforgettable impression of the recent history of these areas, and shows how they developed during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The book recalls the farms, estates and country houses that existed in the Enfield area before public transport and communications were widely available, and it records the rapid spread of suburban building.

The changes were dramatic and the book provides a fascinating visual account of houses and public buildings, shops, factories and pubs that have vanished or been altered almost beyond recognition.
