Brand New Book

From the rear side cover: From a child's viewpoint, the pre-war years of the 1930s were full of carefree, halcyon days when the sun always used to shine; but for many people the 1930s were, regrettably, quite the opposite.

In this book all aspects from pre-war to post-war Uxbridge are covered, including street scenes, schools, buildings, transport, leisure and entertainment, and personalities. The book will also be of interest to younger generations growing up in Uxbridge and to those who wish to learn more about the history of the area.

The book will delight anyone who has lived or grown up in Uxbridge, as well as people with a more general interest in the wartime history of this part of West London and beyond....
