Harpenden Through Time Summary

Harpenden Through Time by John Cooper

Harpenden is a small picturesque town situated on the A1081 midway between St Albans and Luton and 25 miles north-west of London. Arguably one of the most attractive areas in the wooded county of Hertfordshire, the town has charm and character all of its own, from the wide boulevard that is the High Street to the lush, verdant expanse of the Common that reaches almost into the town itself. Harpenden Through Time takes the reader on a nostalgic journey back to an age when the pace of life was much slower and more tranquil than it is today. Using a vibrant selection of old picture postcards, many of which have been stored in dusty attics, untouched for generations, coupled with modern-day photographs, we witness the many changes that occurred as this quiet agricultural village developed into the attractive town that we see today.
