Leyton & Leytonstone Past & Present Summary

Leyton & Leytonstone Past & Present: Britain in Old Photographs by Alan Simpson

The once-peaceful villages of Leyton and Leytonstone have undergone a rapid transformation since the mid-nineteenth century. Both have grown from rural communities with farms and market gardens, to become suburban towns, eventually engulfed by the vast expansion of greater London. The steady influx of newcomers and new lifestyles has developed the character of the streets and buildings of the London Borough of Waltham Forest. This book traces some of those fascinating transformations through a selection of over eighty pairs of photographs comparing old and contemporary views, painting a revealing picture of many of the changes that have taken place over the last 150 years. Each pair of photographs is accompanied by a caption containing a wealth of local information. This new title will appeal to all those who wish to know more about the history of the area, as well as evoking nostalgic memories for those who remember Leyton and Leytonstone as they used to be.
