For a new resident moving into Kilburn/Queens Park it's fascinating to know the history of the area. From those of us from newer countries (Australia) it's just incredible to see the amount of history found in such a small area. The priory, the wells, WH Smith's mansion (just a couple of blocks away from us), the shops, hotels, theartes, pubs... It's a shame that some of the history was lost so recently. I didn't know the blitz would have struck this far out.

It's not just a timeline, but written in an engaging manner detailing both history and historic (and more recent) figures who've lived in the area. The book has a huge amount of photos and illustrations, and is is a well printed hardback.

A map (or Google Maps) is essential while reading.

This is a lovely book with lots of old photos of old Kilburn and West Hampstead. As someone who lived in Kilburn for over 30 years and who's family lived there for over one hundred years it brings back many memories. Like many parts of London it has fallen fowl of the bulldozers. Many of the Victorian buildings that I remember in my youth are gone. It wasn't the bombs that hit them but the bulldozers in the 1960's. Yes we had bombs but they only hit a building here and there. It was the march of destruction
as it became clear that the land they occupied was worth a lot of money. Yes it got rid of a lot of bad housing but with it went Kilburn's heart. Now us old Kilburnites look at it from our country homes and remember its hay day when Kilburn High Road was one of the best shopping roads in London. When we go back it is pretty awful to see how rundown it has become. Gone are the big shops e.g. Woolworths,B.H.S, Marks & Spencer (that is if you want more than food).
I can recommend this book if you want to see how this part of London used to look and it's long history.
