A Century of Chatham Summary

A Century of Chatham: Events, People and Places Over the 20th Century by Philip Macdougall

This fascinating selection of photographs illustrates the extraordinary transformation that has taken place in Chatham during the twentieth century. The book offers an insight into the daily lives and living conditions of local people and gives the reader glimpses and details of familiar places during a century of unprecedented change. Many aspects of Chatham's recent history are covered, famous occasions and individuals are remembered and the impact of national and international events is witnessed. The book provides a striking account of the changes that have also altered Chatham's appearance and records the process of transformation. Drawing on detailed local knowledge of the community, and illustrated with a wealth of black-and-white photographs, this book recalls what Chatham has lost in terms of buildings, traditions and ways of life. It also acknowledges and celebrates the character and energy of local people as they move through the first years of the twenty-first century.

About Philip Macdougall

PHILIP MACDOUGALL first moved to the Medway area in 1972 when he took up a teaching post at the Hundred of Hoo School. From that time onwards he has devoted much of his time to studying Chatham's past, at first concentrating on the dockyard, but eventually becoming fascinated with the town itself. Philip's earlier books have included The Book of Medway, The Chatham Dockyard Story and Chatham Dockyard in Old Photographs.
