Uxbridge From Old Photographs Summary

Uxbridge From Old Photographs by Ken Pearce

The evocative photographs that have been selected for this fascinating book reflect the dramatic and lasting changes that took place in Uxbridge immediately after the Second World War and into the 1960s and 1970s. The pictures show the lives of local people and how they adapted to the accelerating prosperity of the era that followed the wake of World War II. Uxbridge From Old Photographs covers the years that saw the advent of washing machines and television, the spread of new fashions and forms of popular entertainment and the increasing use of the motorcar. Rare views of streets and buildings that have been caught up in the path of these developments have been included as this book aims to provide a visual record of the many houses, public buildings, shops, factories and pubs that have been demolished or altered beyond recognition. Many who remember the Uxbridge of yesteryear will enjoy this renewed glimpse of their former haunts and will appreciate such a revealing account of the history of an old town.
