An inter-war suburb of North West London, Kingsbury - now part of the Borough of Brent - has late Saxon origins. Featuring over 170 fascinating photographs and illustrations, some rarely seen, Kingsbury Through Time charts the area's development. Author Geoffrey Hewlett takes in Fryent, The Hyde, Roe Green, Grove Park and Queensbury, which together create the suburb we know today. We see the impact of the First World War and the construction of the Stanmore extension to the Metropolitan line on what had hitherto been a rural area. Images of people, places, transport, leisure and sport cover the past hundred years and more. Planning schemes promoted new roads and polo pitches gave way to airfields. This study of Kingsbury compares for the first time what the area could have been to what it has become.
