In the 1850s the area consisted of three villages - Turnham Green along the main road to the west and the riverside hamlets of Chiswick and Strand on the Green, separated by fields, market gardens and the grounds of several large mansions. Since that time industry has come and gone, great houses have become institutions before succumbing to development, the fields have been built over and transport has moved from river boats and horse-drawn coaches to the six-lane A4. This is Carolyn and Peter Hammond's third book of old photographs of Chiswick, and once again they have assembled a wide and fascinating collection of images, including paintings and prints as well as photographs and postcards. These images are grouped in chapters by subject and combined with informative captions, allowing interesting comparisons as we trace Chiswick's journey through time from three rural hamlets to a cosmopolitan London suburb.
