Published by the Loughton and District Historical Society in 2003, 58 pages. Paperback (N5194)
The author's family moved to Loughton in the mid 1920's, and the author records what life was like in the area over the next twenty years...
From the rear side cover: Loughton between the wars was changing. The leaders of the community envisaged a time when all its open land other than the Forest would be built over. But for those who came to live in Loughton, it was still an open, semi-rural middle class place, mostly village, only part suburb.
In this book, the author tells the sotory of that Loughton - of private schools, tennis clubs, steam trains, private buses and dancing lessons, the Loughton of the 1920's and 30's - a charming cameo of Loughton life in the past....
The booklet includes eight pages of black and white photographs
The condition of the book is generally very good. The cover has one or two very minor scuffs, and some light nibbling and wear along the edges and corners, but the spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a small price sticker on the rear side cover, and some bubbling to the inside pages throughout
