5.0 out of 5 stars Stuffed with photographs 11 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book will interest anyone who has memories of East Ham c1900-1945. For those of us who haven't, the copious illustrations conjure up a time and a way of living that our grandparents knew. The earlier history of East Ham is briefly described and includes an 18th C map so you can see where it all started from. The illustrations used (all black and white) are mostly old picture postcards - and to be clear there are more pictures than text. There is a section devoted to schools, one on West Ham FC, chapters on the impact of the two World Wars locally, information about transport (rali, trams, buses etc.), and an account of the North Woolwich dock complex, which was a major driver for the development of East Ham. There are many normal every-day street scenes, which I found the most atmospheric of all.

I found this book a satisfying mix of sensible, factual text and informative illustration. It's accessible but not superficial and I recommend it.
