Upminster Through Time Summary

Upminster Through Time by Michael Foley

The east London town of Upminster, part of the borough of Havering, has a long and distinctive history. This erstwhile Essex village was once known for its farming, but with the arrival of rail and underground transport links in the early twentieth century, it developed as a market garden for the growing capital. Indeed, the town once boasted a number of windmills, one of which, the Grade II-listed Upminster Windmill, still remains. Today, Upminster is mainly residential. All of these changes are captured in this unique selection of old and new images and informative captions. Compiled by London author Michael Foley, Upminster Through Time is essential reading for anybody who knows and loves this historical town.
