Synopsis

This fascinating selection of photographs illustrates the extraordinary transformation that has taken place in Kingston upon Thames over the years. The book offers an insight into the daily lives and living conditions of local people and gives the reader glimpses of familiar places during this century of unprecedented change. Many aspects of Kingston's recent history are covered, famous occasions and individuals are remembered and the impact of national and international events is witnessed. Drawing on detailed local knowledge of the community, and illustrated with a wealth of photographs, this book recalls what Kingston upon Thames has lost in terms of buildings, traditions and ways of life. It also acknowledges the regeneration that has taken place and celebrates the character and energy of local people as they move through the first years of this new century.
