Set mainly in South London, as Bennett moved south of the river at an early age, there are also his memories of Islington and what he saw and witnessed in those days, along with what news was taking place, both national and international. With anecdotes abut his growing up, and with his thoughts about how much had changed by 1924, and his personal feelings on education and the state of the country there is a lot to take in and absorb here. Find out what it was like to travel on omnibuses and on trains, as they first started to make an impression on people's lives, as well as the number of boats that used to be on the Thames. Also we have descriptions on the original policeman's uniform along with other fashions; there is a lot to keep you interested in this book.
There is an active table of contents where there is a brief description of each chapter, so that if you just want to look at certain sections it is easy to do so. Of course as with a book of this type it shows more than what living in London was like, it also shows what life was like in all of Britain's major cities.
People interested in this era of history should enjoy the book.

Excellent history. Much of it set where I grew up !! Interesting to know the history of "my" area as a child.
Would recommend to anyone that is or was a Londoner.
This was a fascinating look at London from 1850 to 1920. Bennett must have kept a detailed diary in order to recall so much. This will appeal to anyone who knows London. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Barnowl
