5.0 out of 5 stars Bloomin marvellous, 6 Feb. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bermondsey & Rotherhithe Remembered (Archive Photographs) (Paperback)
I was born in Rotherhithe and my ancestors have worked on the river and docks there for hundreds of years. I came across this book by accident when researching my family history.

I have now bought 4 copies of it for various family members. If you were born, grew up or have relatives from the area, you will love this book.

It is easy read with a plethora of brilliant contemporary photographs from the 20's - 70's. If you remember with nostalgia Manzes pie and mash shop or the smells of the different unloading cargoes or local industries as you walked through this dockland district, before the massive redevelopment, you must buy Bermondsey and Rotherhithe Remembered.

My 91 year old ex-docker father even managed to find the house he was born in amongst the photos and named virtually every soul standing in the street staring at the camera in the early 1930s!

A terrific book - as my dad said when he got his copy "Bloomin' marvellous!".
